More about this scene

Yarmouth's church was built between 1611 and 1614, and restored by the Victorians in 1873. Within is the impres- sive tomb of the Caroleon admiral Sir Robert Holmes. If the head on his effigy does not quite seem to match the body, that is because it was added later. The admiral captured a statue of Louis IV on a French vessel, and thought it would be ideal for his own monument. He paid a sculptor to add a new head.

Other Memories from Yarmouth

Aside from teaching with a wonderful staff, brilliant headmaster, and receptive children I remember the ferry, and having fish and chips on the pier. Always a fond memory to go back to that time, as I met the love of my life, my soul mate that year!
