    Perhaps the most well-known encumbant of the Vicarage of Herne was Nicolas Ridley who is noted for the “Te Deum” to be sung in English for the first time. He may more often be remembered, as the then Bishop of London, for being burned at the stake in Oxford, along with Bishop Latimer. He was eventually accused and convicted of heresy in 1555 although unfortunately, throwing his support behind the attempt by Lady Jane Grey to become the Queen of England two years earlier had obviously not helped his cause. Prior to his death, he wrote several letters in which he fondly remembered his time at Herne.


    There are several fine 15th and 16th Century brasses in this Church. These are memorials to; Lady Fineux, the wife of the Chief Justice of the King’s Bench, John Darley, a former Vicar at Herne, Lady Phelip, whose husband supplied the jewels for the coronation of Edward IV, Peter Halle and his wife and the family of John Atte Sea.

    Nice shot! I wish the modern house wasn't on the right though, but I can see where you'd have had to sacrifice some headstones otherwise. Okay ---is it just me or does anyone else see faces in the front 4 headstones?.... Seriously... My sightings are below:

    stone closest to church - head shape middle portion [light area] of stone -oval head shape and ears...

    next stone to right of it -half way down an angel facing left with hands folded.

    stone in middle - eyes and mouth

    stone on far right is a bit harder to see it, but its there if you look long enough - this was actually the second one I saw.

    Forgive me, for I have been straing at the computer screen all day ;):lol:

    Only see one on the third stone from the left. Animal like face.

    But if I look long enough I'm sure I'll still plenty of weird stuff. :lol: Not unusual with stones though. Stone walls do the same to me.

    I like the processing you used...really give it an 'old world' flavour.
