COTES memorial

There are several memorials to Charles COTES around the village. One is the memorial plaque inside All Saints Church and I've added a photo of this along with a newspaper report of the dedication of the plaque in 1905 and a photo of St Katherine's Chapel, referred to in the article and in which the memorial sits.

My new best friend Sarah has been doing some research into the village hall, another, slightly larger, memorial to Charles, and I'll point you to her findings soon.

An entirely random assortment of updates

A week or so ago I added a few snippets of information to the Wing One-Place Study website and forgot to tell you about them.

They aren't entirely random of course, they have all come from the Bucks Herald.

A new vicar

I understand that Wing has a new vicar - welcome to Rev Helen Barnes! She is the first female vicar of Wing and I'm very excited to be able to add her to my list of clergy of All Saints.

TATHAM memorials

Following on from yesterday's update of various memorial inscriptions for vicar Peter Thomas Ouvry, today it's the turn of vicar Francis Henry Tatham. As well as his family gravestone, now rather neglected and overgrown, there's a handsome memorial inside All Saints and the lovely lychgate to the church.

Going to the chapel

But you won't be getting married, as these chapels are no longer open. I've added a photo of the former Primitive Methodist chapel in Crafton to the Methodist webpage, and a photo of the former Union chapel in Littleworth to the Independents webpage.
