800 exploration of the Church: Sunday 27th April 2pm

April 27, 2014
2:00 pmto4:00 pm

The last of the Horningsea 800 explorations will be a chance to find out the secrets of the Church!

Walk around the outside and inside, look at the gargoyles and work out whose heads appear on the windows. Look at pictures of the Church over the centuries and see how it has changed – with additions, windows appearing and disappearing, the roof being raised and lowered… Look at the Jekyll drawings and specifications, the Saxon tombstones, the Church wardens records from 18th C – why were children paid 1d or 2d  for catching pole cats and lobsters?

Photographs of the Deed and Seals from 1214 will be on display courtesy of the Master and Fellows of St John’s College.
