Sutton Courtenay Church



A few months ago I visited this church called All Saints Sutton Courtenay, I know I was in for a treat when I read the history about the place and had previously visited George Orwell's grave and looked round the outside of the place. Well I did not expect to see these wall paintings and was quite in awe of them.


Ok they are not mediaeval but they are old and I love how some one went to the trouble of painting this will on the wall at the back of the church 
 
 
A well painted GR coat of arms sits in between the ten Commandments
 

I love this bequest you see on the south aisle wall. William Andrews Left money to Six poor widows, one wonders why because it does not say for how long and get the six widows coming to him at the bottom for their goods


But this mural under the arch of the bell tower was the best, I presume it's a memorial for some one who died in 1607 but I like how the guy is grinning at everyone.
