Crafty Church Mice In A 6th Century Church
A delightful surprise in this old haunt of mine and mum's
I had a beautiful day with my mum last week in Hampshire. We drove to a sweet village called Titchfield which is dear to my mum and the memories she has of her late husband there. It’s also where my son once attended art classes during our Home Ed days. The village has a history stretching back to the 6th century.
One stop we made (amongst coffee and cake) was St. Peter’s Church. St Peter's was established in about 680 making it one of the oldest used churches in England. It’s changed a lot since then with many additions but it’s still a lovely building and as we discovered, crafty church mice!
These were so fun, dotted all over the church. We made sport of finding them all and giggling as their charming arrangements and accompanying cards.
I thought you might enjoy this delightful distraction today and maybe learn something to boot! Your kids will find them funny I’m sure.
I’ve also shared some images from the village and the Abbey ruins we went to on our final stop.
