Door in a wall, St Mary's Church grounds, Hadleigh.
The sun has gone down and N. is asleep already. I am light-headed but holding up well, although I'm sure I'll sleep well tonight.
It was lunchtime when we got to John and Dot's in Suffolk and we had a light cheese and bread lunch before having a little wander around Hadleigh, the closest town. It's a medieval market town that grew enormously from the wealth of wool and cloth. It was already in its heyday when William the Conqueror arrived in 1066, imagine that! There is a huge flint church, St Mary's, with an attractive patterned spire that has been painted by Turner, Constable and Gainsborough, and there are lots of tudor houses plastered and with timber beams showing. The doorways are tiny and often brightly painted. It was really delightful.
John cooked up a delicious British lamb barbecue dinner with salads, which we ate in the garden again. The forecast is for hot weather for the next two days at least.
