Nick, Lawrence and I went down into the depths of the crypt today, nowadays there is a trap door. There used to be stairs that opened up into the church and a rather grand door way in the crypt onto what is now the school playground which was bricked up years ago. I presume that the playground was originally bought to be a cemetery, but never consecrated. Older parishioners remember it as a field where the parish priest kept his horse.
We found the pillar that used to be used for the statue of our Glorious Patron and this piece of stone beautifully gilded, I don't know what it was for, I presume it was the base for the pulpit though it is not quite in keeping with carving elsewhere in the Church.
