Suffolk on a drab Saturday

I awoke to a damp dismal start. 

We ended up at Lavenham, I didn't take many photos as you've seen it many times before.  We lunched in the National Trusts Guildhall, it was soup weather and we were obliged with a very tasty Vegetable soup.

Trish outside an aptly named shop....

















Although not religious I often light a candle for Mum.....




I had noticed that it was the day of the Suffolk Church bike ride (charity event) so I surmised that All Saints Acton would be open.







The Jennens memorial. This is to Robert Jennens. His son William was a miser and at his death was the richest commoner in England with the estate generating income of over £40,000 a year and was reputedly worth £1.1 million (which we worth approximately £250 million today).  He died intestate and the subsequent legal proceedings took over 100 years and exhausted the estate. The case is said to have inspired a similar case in Dicken's Bleak House


We wandered to Melford Hall and bypassed the trusts offer of guides etc and headed to the cafe.....

Really nice. That little squirrel was sweet. You never se e those things in Europe. Maybe you should publish a book.
