News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

I realise the mortuary chapels date from 1697 (Monins) and 1712 (Furnese), when maintaining the integrity of the building was less of a consideration perhaps, but surely they could have used flint to match the existing chancel? The bricks came from Waldershare's own brickworks, so maybe keeping that employed took precedence...

Unfortunately this church was closed when we visited.  There are some beautiful tombs to be found inside the chapels, hopefully next time I go it will be open!
