    Default St Theobalds Church, Great Hautbois


    We don't know much history about this church, apart that it was apparently purposely ruined mid Victorian times, perhaps due to its slightly off the road location. There's a little more information on http://www.norfolkchurches.co.uk/hau...autboisold.htm.

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Nice find, Casio.
    Loving the reference to it looking like a Cornish Tin Mine!

    Maybe we should offer a prize to the first non-Norfolk person who can pronounce the place name properly

    I must still be a Norfolkite. It took me a minute to realise you could actually pronounce that one any way other than R-ow-ton

    I've lost most of it, but can slip back into it if I talk to someone with a strong accent. I still have the odd word which comes out really Norfolk. I get constant grief for pronouncing petrol as pet-rull, but with a silent T
