Great Welnetham St Thomas Becket Church
Great Welnetham St Thomas Becket Church
This little church has no tower, but instead a small wooden belfry which was erected in 1749 and paid for by one James Merest. At the junction of the nave and chancel there is a small carving in a quoin of a snake. > LinkExternal link Inside the church everything seems a little clinical. The 'a' in Thomas a Becket is a Victorian invention because it flowed off the tongue more easily, and should not be included in his name. Welnethan can be spelled with or without the 'h' after the W. Ordnance Survey maps state - Welnetham, but the modern custom seems to be Whelnetham. Both seem to have equal usage.
