I am the director of a Norfolk based architectural practice. I have over 20 years' experience of working with historic and existing buildings, churches and sensitive sites. This blog offers opinions and articles on the wonderful world of architecture and building.
On a day last July, I was due to meet the churchwarden of Hemblington church. I set off early as I am very, very good at getting lost, and this place is far from anywhere. Driving carefully down tiny little lanes I eventually found it, on top of a hill, among fields of ripening crops. I sat on the bench whilst I waited. The breeze was warm and scented, the trees rustled gently and the bench was comfortable.
Leaving behind a frantic and rushed day, I enjoyed the oasis of peace surrounding this lovely little building.
