St Botolph's church - churchyard
The grass has not yet been cut in the southeastern section. St Botolph's church > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link stands in the grounds of Westwick Hall - home to the Berneys and later the Petres - hemmed in by tall trees on three sides and hence difficult to photograph. The church was extensively restored by J Petre in 1845. There are several C18 and C19 wall monuments > LinkExternal link and the east window is by Heaton, Butler and Bayne (1898) > LinkExternal link. Other windows contain C19 glass roundels, some depicting bees > LinkExternal link. These were funded by the Rev Henry John Coleman > LinkExternal link - the then rector and an enthusiastic bee keeper - from the proceeds of the sale of his honey. The font dates from the early 16th century > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link as does the restored rood screen > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. The church is kept locked but a key is available. For more information see: LinkExternal link
