St. Mary the Virgin, Braughing

St. Mary the Virgin, Braughing

DSCN0710St. Mary’s was open. I met a friendly man who told me that they had had an induction service for their new priest a few days before when the church was full. Some things had been tidied away for this. The church was spotless.

There is a good children’s corner here and 20 people had signed the visitors book in July. Also, a church yard plan and memorial list which is useful for those tracing ancestors. A votive stand can be used and there were some laminated bookmarks in the pews with some good prayer ideas on them – a great idea.

A lot of effort has gone into another World War 1 display. This consists of a glass topped display cabinet with a lot of ribbons in it. The gold ones are for those who served from the village and the red ones represent those who died. An excellent idea.

The website is at and this gives good visitor information.
