Life and Thyme!

Inspired Sunday!

Mr E’s family originally hales from Dorset. To be more precise from Puddletown and Tolpuddle. We believe that he shares a common ancestor with James Hammett one of the Tolpuddle Martyrs.

The church of St Mary at Puddletown where we have the strongest family connection was a complete delight

  1. A beautiful stone church. I like the box pews, but they tend to look better than they sit!

  2. I do love to see these old stone churches! They always seem so regal and lofty.
