On the Fuller trail

On the way back from spending the last few days at my dads we decided to stop off in Brightling to look at Mad Jack Fuller’s grave. It is certainly unique and the ideal place for my daughter to get a picture for a book reading competition.

Whilst there we had a look inside the St Thomas a Becket church. Here is a list of rectors, I will transcribe later.

St George’s Church, Arreton, Isle of Wight – Memorial Inscriptions

I have just returned from a very hot holiday in the Isle of Wight with the family. Just south east of Newport you can find ‘Arreton Barns’ which hosts a collection of craftsmen and women and their wares. Next to this is St George’s Church which is a wonderful place. I have photographed most of the memorial inscriptions inside the church with varying degrees of quality, but they may be helpful if you have relatives in that area.
