Burnham Deepdale Church 2/2

The Norman Font of Barnack stone is square in shape and depicts a figure for each month of the year from a farming man's point of view. For example February shows a person with his feet up before the fire, June, a person weeding, September, threshing and December, feasting together. Of particular charm is the window in the tower showing in the top half an angel pulling the chains of a censur and below Mary Magdalene holding a scroll. The windows in the porch contain delightful medieval faces of the sun and moon.

I don't recall seeing a church with a round tower before. I like the flint construction.
Brian Walbey: Perhaps you might pass thisw ay during your Norfolk holiday, it is right next to the main coast road in the village.

Brian Walbey: You can just see the font at the back oft he church in the lower right oicture.
I like that life is shown through the farmer's eye.
Brian Walbey: Proof I think that it is, and always has been, a delightful village church.
Looks like an old 'un!

How were you able to post multiple photos?

I have seen this done more recently but do not know how to make it happen.
