bolney lychgate ... i wonder why they thought latin was preferable to english ?

et in caram parentum suorum memoriam tam desideratorum
henrici huth et augustae ludovicae sophiae huth
hanc porticum amoris et pietatis causa st(r?)uxit filius
anno salutis mcmv

coat of arms photographed in near darkness in bolney church

you often find an old coat of arms in a church, usually in some dark recess

i'm not really sure what their purpose was but sometimes the painting is rarther well done

i wonder if someone somewhere is an expert on their history ?

bolney churchyard has some unique gravestones, long and thin with a ball or disc at each end, no one knows why
