Hemingstone St Gregory’s church
When I visited this church, a path had been cut through the deep grass which covered most of the headstones and an artist sat at the gate painting the tranquil scene. The church proudly boasts Saxon long and short work on the corner of the nave. A church has probably stood on this promontory since the 7th century. Inside the north porch stands an enormous pair of organ bellows, now redundant. The door to the tower is 14th century and completely iron-bound. Ralph Cantrell, a Catholic, made his mark by having built a room on the side of the church. His conscience would not allow him to attend the Church of England at a time when it was obligatory, so to stay within the law, he worshipped in his own room in his own way. Called ‘Ralph’s hole’, it is now used as a vestry.
