On Saturday we went on the South East District's bellringing outing, organised by Tom Scase of Debenham. It was well attended, with some new faces from Debenham and Otley.
A large and impressive church - all ready for a wedding later in the day. There were pots of cyclamens plus two gigantic flower arrangements at the front of the church.
Another church we visited was Quidenham, which has a round tower. These round towers are a Norfolk speciality, although you do find a few in Suffolk.
The churches all seem to have healthy populations of bats, as their dry droppings are everywhere to be seen. This was a cute cloth bat hanging in one of the church windows. Some of the churches have sonic bat repellents, but as bats are protected by law, they must not be directly harmed. And they do good by catching countless insects.
I will be talking about the papers presented at the BQSG seminar in the next post.
