More about this scene

By the mid 1950s, the Bridge Inn had a flint porch, thatched to match the roof. The area outside had been made into an attractive garden where refreshments purchased at the annexe could be enjoyed. Drain pipes and telephone wires indicate the arrival of modern conveniences. Today the annexe has lost its pretty little porch and become a souvenir gift shop, and the lawns and flower beds are a car park.

I am looking for a church called Heringby or St Ethelbert Church where my ancestor Hugh Atte Fenne was buried in the chancel next to his mother. He bequeathed money to rebuild the tower, roof and porch around 1474 when he died. He also founded a college and an almshouse for the poor. Could this be the same church? I have been searching for it. My e-mail is sjlatshaw@comcast.net ~Susan
