Tom n Jane in the Priory
It was wonderful to be asked to do Jane and Tom's marriage blessing in the ruins of Much Wenlock Priory. This seemed to be a one-off experiment for English Heritage who look after the site, so perhaps it was one of the first services held there since the Dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII. mayBe led some chants - I hope the monks were smiling, even singing with us. The rest of the weekend was magnificent - we all stayed on a camp/cabin site with ceilidh, welly-wanging, mass tug-of-war, and story-telling. Well done T+J who pretty much organised it all.
