Great Sampford – St Michael the Archangel

I visited this church on 6th April 2017, nicely located with old houses opposite, and a pleasant interior with a tiny organ.

There was a fine rookery outside (I love rookeries, the sight and the noise that the rooks make).

Bradwell-on-Sea – St Thomas’s church

In the attractive village of Bradwell-on-Sea, St Thomas’ church is bounded by old buildings and a noisy rookery. I have been there twice but not been inside either time. These photos were taken either on 24th March 2008 in early spring, or 17th October 2009 with golden leaves falling around us.
