What a wonderful site you have created! It's very pleasant to look at from this distance on a cold winter's day, now that Paul Hodge has brought it to my attention via the Facebook Historic Churches of Norfolk page. Thank you for this.

I was out cycling today and stopped in Kirk Hammerton and sat on the village green to admire the church. I walked around the outside (it was locked) but it is truly an outstanding building.
I looked it up on your website and have to say thank you for the information.
Keep up the good work

Lovely website with lovely pictures! I came upon it searching for some pictures of parish churches. Have you heard of Richard Surman's book 'Secret Churches'? I recently found it in my local library. :)
It is a shame about locked doors; that is happening here as well i'm afraid.

I happened on your site when searching for information on Coleshill Grammar School where I was also a pupil (1956-1964.
The photographs of the church are lovely and I well-remember the intricately- carved font. As a member of the school choir I sang Handel's Messiah there. A couple of years ago I sang there again with a mixed choir and a local brass orchestra.
I am still annually in touch with Tom and receive the most descriptive letters from him. He was an inspiration to me!
Happy days!

Admin reply: How lovely to hear from another Old Coleshillian, Carol! Happy days indeed. as you are in touch with Tom Wilson do please direct him to my site and to my little tribute. I remember him - and many others on the staff - very fondly although I doubt that he remembers me!

I photograhed this font many years ago and no longer have the photos. Delighted to see yours as I was telling a friend about this lovely font. I had always thought that Christ was dragging Adam to salvation. But I suppose it could be anyone.
Mary

Admin reply: Mary, thank you for your posting. You don't actually say which font you mean but I am guessing it's Eardisley in Herefordshire? If so, I think the "harrowing of hell" theme is widely assumed. When I look at the pictures again, though, there is an oddity. The supposed Christ figure is dragging a man WITH A HALO! Surely Christ himself is the only hallowed figure who would have visited hell? I wonder then if God is doing the dragging and Christ is being dragged? In which case is the man with a book someone other than God? Any ideas?
