May I blink now, please?

No, not me just after my cataract operation but part of a tomb in St Michael and All Angels, Moccas Park, Herefordshire. It’s probably that of Sir Hugh de Fresne, who died in 1375.

("Fresne" is probably an older form of frêne, modern French for the Ash tree -- Fraxinus excelsior. Using a circumflex instead of 's' became common in France from the 17th century.)

This is a lovely Norman church that’s well worth a visit (see here).

And if you’re in the area, go to see Kilpeck Church and its riotous carvings. It was possibly built by the same masons as at Moccas.
