Dear friends of the site,
Four new entries this week, two of them major ones. Firstly, long-awaited and much requested, Kettlebaston makes its first appearance. I only hope that my virtual tour of it will encourage you to seek it out in the flesh. Also, Hengrave, one of the most interesting churches in Suffolk, and the County's only medieval church to still host Catholic worship.
I have also uplinked a shorter entry for Culford (mother church to last week's Culford Heath); also, one of the county's most obscure outposts, Hunston.
I had a tremendous opportunity last week at Bromeswell to reach the parts most church explorers don't reach. You can see the fruits of my visit on the updated entry. All of these are accessible from the front page. Entries are impending in the next week or so for Lakenheath and Mildenhall.
Those of you in the area cannot have failed to notice the double-page feature on the site in tonight's Ipswich Evening Star. These things are never the seamless acts of self-publicity one hopes they'll be, but I was rather pleased with it. It doesn't make me seem too much like a harmless eccentric ;-)
For those of you not so lucky as to live in Suffolk, Aidan Semmens tells me that a version of the article will soon be available at http://www.suffolk-now.co.uk/Content/Features/features_home.htm,
- perhaps tomorrow.
The site will also briefly appear on BBC Radio Suffolk at 7am on Sunday, for those of you in the county. All this, of course, is on the back of the impending Songs of Praise appearance, 5.40pm on Sunday, on BBC1. David Taviner, the producer, tells me that he is very pleased with the programme, and all systems are go.
I'm ready to be deluged in hits...
