Viewed from field beside access track to churchyard. The field is in the adjacent square (south) and covered with a sprinkling of snow on this day in early February. St Botolph's church was built in several stages, beginning in the 12th century. The nave was rebuilt in about 1470 and extensive restoration work was carried out in Victorian times.
