I promised Canon Christopher...

...that I would try and photograph a medieval mural of St Christopher in the Church of St Etheldreda, Horley (N. Oxon). where I have been staying.

It's said to be largest mural of the saint in England. The Christ Child IS on his shoulder, but my picture doesn't quite show "the King of bliss" as the inscription describes him. What you can see is a chap fishing in the river below. It's thought to be the earliest representation of an English angler, waiting for a bite.
