Coat of Arms


Took this photo in a St Mary's church Avington a few months ago and it's of a Royal Coat of arms from I think the 1700's when the church was built.

 
Not far away is this Funerary Hatchment  which is one of the best I have seen in a church yet

  4. I had to look up the meaning of "hatchment." Lo and behold, it means exactly what you showed us. Thanks for the view and the vocabulary lesson. And thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
