Rushbrooke


Anyone here with a village connection?

Rushbrooke Church again an unusual church but of much interest. The nave has stalls facing each other instead of pews. The only church coat of arms relating to Henry VIII in the whole of England is to be seen here, weather it is genuine is debatable. The whole area is immaculately kept including the village and farmhouse, it really looks a picture
