Ingatestone walk 17th September

It was a lovely walk on a bright morning off September 22nd, over 20 people, enjoying the surprises our knowledgeable guide Robert had laid on for us – access beyond the gatehouse at Ingatestone Hall allowing us to see views of the Hall which we would not have been able to otherwise. Also, the very informative vicar of St Giles’ church Mountnessing showed us the church (including showing us gravestones buried in front of the altar and normally covered by carpet. Apparently the origin of the term “stinking rich “ – you had to be rich to be buried in front of the altar but it might not smell very nice for the rest of the congregation!)

We were pleased to see so many people and very grateful to Robert for leading us. Please look out for our future walks.
