Plaque: St Benet Sherehog Church - stone
Before the dreadfull fire anno 1666 stood the parish church of St Bennet Sherehog.
The lettering on this inscribed stone is delightful: in "THE" the "H" is just a horizontal line joining the "T" to the "E", the two "N"s in "BENNET" share the middle vertical and in "DREADFULL" is that a "U" or an "LL" floating above the "V" ? We have found other plaques with similarly playful use of typefaces and they often seem to come from the 1950s.
