Thomas the Wiveton millwright

I came across this lovely Yorkstone memorial recently in Wiveton, Norfolk. I love these stones that show the tools of the trade. This is really legible and sound after nearly 300 years……..a classic in my opinion. Interesting how the 1’s are dotted eh?

    That is such a meaningful and beautiful stone. Folk must have cared so much for him. Detailing has survived so well – and now we are trying again to get more meaning into our memorials, just like his. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to get into a time machine and watch the making of that and the community that existed around the workshop at the time?
