Well here is the church in question, but the clock is going just fine these days….
Rupert Brooke wrote the poem “The Old Vicarage, Granchester” and the lines
“Stands the church clock at ten-to-three
And is there honey still for tea?”
on a trip to Berlin in 1912 whilst feeling homesick for Cambridge and in particular Granchester, his friends and the idyllic lifestyle he had led as a student.
If you would like to read more on Rupert Brooke, look here
If this wets your appetite ,, then visit the church
and if you visit Granchester near Cambridge, be sure to take in this museum, and have your tea in the same spot he used to frequent
you won’t be disappointed.
Joining in with Inspired Sunday, where you can see some really lovely churches.
I have one more from our trip to Cambridge for next week, which will show the link between Cambridge and the US.
