Grundisburgh

This EADT article is about the village just a few miles from Ipswich town centre, including the rather splendid mediaeval St. Mary’s Church (left) with about sixty angels on the hammer-beam roof, wall paintings, a more recent tower and a cenotaph. Grundisburgh Hall is not far away, as is Alice Driver Road, named after the 1558 martyr that the article omits to mention.

Here are some of the panels just inside the door of the Colchester Playhouse, now a theatre-themed public house. They illustrate John Ball, after whom a minor town centre road is also named, becoming a priest, a prisoner at Maidstone and then participating in the 1381

Peasants’ Revolt (from 30 May), fighting at Blackheath (on 12 June) and then being executed at St. Alban’s on 15 July that year.

An obituary

murreyandblue

Here is the BBC’s official post about Dr. John Ashdown-Hill, who died last Friday. However, his permanent legacy includes these Powerpoint presentations, originally devised so that he can still educate you about Richard, his life, family and era when he first became unwell enough to do so in person. Alternatively, this is the East Anglian Daily Times’ take.
