The Long Good Friday Part 4 – Epilogue

Last visit of the day was to the church of St Mary’s at Cumwhitton. I was met at the entrance to the village by a rare sight these days, a traditional red British telephone box. These used to be a common sight throughout the UK but now they tend to be (ab)used by banks for […]
