History always caught my eye; therefor I truly like this kind of photos and places where we can always try to learn more about who made what and when!

Joy said...

So they have a wall/stone that lists all the vicars? How cool. Talk about being immortalised.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow!

Your images are so you, Ashwathy. Radiant, understated. Subtle yet shining.

Maddy - Yes. Here's what the dictionary says : "a person acting as priest of a parish in place of the rector, or as representative of a religious community to which tithes belong"

Ifthikar - Yes, its working now. Thanks!

Amrita - Indeed...
