COMMISSION 2020

At the moment I am delighted to have been invited to work on a commission to celebrate the archaeological dig at the 7th Century Lyminge Church.

The 19th Century Canon Jenkins was rather creative in writing the history of this beautiful church and its saints, so it has been a great adventure to be included in the search for truth.

"We know that Jenkins distorted his records to make the walls fit a neatly symmetrical plan.  Further investigation has also revealed that he did not draw what he actually found,

so we are in a sense literally re-writing history. 

 

Don’t always believe what Antiquarians of the past had to say, however confidently they may have said it.  Even clergymen were clearly not above twisting the truth to fit their views."
