[Also know in monochrome]

St Mary the Virgin Church. Rev. Canon John Damett Nairne M.A. rector & surrogate; Rev. John Maryon-Wilson M.A. curate. [Kelly's Directory, 1908]

"A poor card - but the only one obtainable. I was shown over this church by a very kind gentleman who gave me an invitation to visit him whenever I pleased ---. The church dates from 1330 and is a foundation of the Knight Templars. It possesses a fine screen in which shields of the Knights Templars in miniature are placed." >>>
