It DOES look like a millstone... great shot!

Great textures in that wall. When I loved in East Anglia it was quite common to find Roman bricks in church walls.

Hi Oz Girl.

If it is a millstone (and I can't think what else it is) it must have been a domestic one because, by memory, it was probably about fifteen inches across.

And the fun thing is, there are two bits of it there.

Hi, Hermes.

I know it's a typo, but I love the idea that you 'loved in East Anglia'.

Where abouts was it?

I lived in rural Essex as a teenager and, amongst the many Roman Remains, a hypercaust was discovered when a car park was being built. There was some charred wood still smelling of smoke in it! Extraordinary! But Roman Remains were so common, it was all covered up again and the car park built on top!

I did get married in Peterborough, but I mainly lived near Ipswich. I did an acheology course in Colchester and studied a lot of local architecture. I loved the timber-framed houses and small churches, though I prefer living in the west now.

So you did 'love' in East Anglia!

I went to school in Colchester.

Bentonflocke and Elk - I'm glad you like the photo of the millstone in the wall. I find it exciting to come across signs of history (like this) built into parts of our everyday lives. It links us consciously with the past.
