Terrington St Clement Parish Church, What I will always think of as my own home church, beautiful inside, though changes have not all been for the better. beautiful outside too. This fine church of Terrington St Clement has a magnificent south side, having thirteen large clerestory windows on both side of the nave, a pair of flying buttresses and a monastic looking south transept, with six large windows arranged three-two-and then one at the apex. It has a fine chancel with gay chancel brick clerestory. Then a wonder of "Stamford oolitic limestone blocks of the perpendicular north tower. This built separate from the church, though connected now with by a walkway of modern toilets, and kitchen area etc. Saint Clements has a very fine font cover, seem at its best open. The church is kept locked, keys available 200 yards away at the local shop. With its square north-west tower, detached from the church, a clock and 6 bells, nave, aisles, transepts with commencement of central tower up to roof level, chancel and south porch. Practically the whole church was rebuilt during the Perpendicular Period, commencing in 1380. At Terrington St Clement Parish Church, There are slight traces of Saxon, Norman and Early English work. This is one of the largest churches in the country and is almost cathedral-like in size and appearance. The west front is especially fine with turrets and pinnacles. There are eighty-one windows. the font is late 14th century, and the lofty cover is Gothic at the top and Classic beneath, Inside the cover are the paintings of the life of Christ. There are several monuments to Bentinck, Edwards, Ascham, Parke, Hamond and other families. There was once a Parochial Chapel of Rest to Saint James, this has now gone completely to decay. A new Mission Church of the same dedication was said to have taken its place, this pulled down too! The thong effect on the third bottom picture is probably a game similar to that of Nine Men's Morris. In act II, scene II of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Queen Titania of Faeries says: The Nine Men's Morris is filled up with mud: And the quaint mazes in the Wanton green. For lack of tread, are indistinguishable. What she was talking about was an intriguing game, generally played with counters on a board set out in a frame pattern of three squares one within the other, with diagonal intersecting lines. Titania's shepherds, as did countrymen in Elizabethan England, carved it out in the turf, thus the quaint maze in the Wanton green. The game though is much older than Shakespeare In the north east corner of Norwich Cathedral Cloister, you can see traces of it scratched out on a stone bench.
