Dig My Grave Both Deep And Wide, Place A Radiator At My Side.



I almost missed spotting this lady. I mean, you don't expect to find a mid 15th century memorial brass nestled up against a mid 20th century radiator.

Words that come to mind are "inappropriate", "insensitive" and "disrespectful".

Memo to the churchwardens of St Peter and St Paul, Hellingly: Shift the radiator or shift the brass; Give the pretty lady some elbow room.

Please.

PS. We don't know who she is. The Sussex Parish Churches site thinks she may be a member of the Devenish family who lived at the wonderfully named Horselunges Manor.
