the wages of sin.....................

My few days away saw me in Derbyshire. I was quite taken with these wall painting in the Parish Church of Nether Haddon. They are believed to be part of a scene from a morality play. History-that is my guidebook-doesn't explain the plot, but I suspect that  that the congregations were being warned about the terrible consequences of their sins!

I also visited the Parish Church of nearby Bakewell which had a fine collection of misericords.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
