Flower Festival

At the weekend I went to the annual Flower Festival at this beautiful old church.  Mum sang in the choir as a young woman and mum and dad got married there.  I try and go every year and usually meet up with my friend, but she wasn't well so couldn't go.

St. Mary's, Old Hunstanton, Norfolk

The parish church of St Mary, situated in the grounds of Hunstanton Hall, is a Grade I listed building.  It was built by Sir Hamon le Strange in about 1300 and extensively rebuilt and restored during the 19th century by architect Frederick Preedy for Henry Le Strange (1815- 1862), developer of New Hunstanton.

This year the theme was Songs.
