Written in Dust A silent glimpse of contemporary Beijing, in a tragic tale both old and new Two Norfolk villages are set to host a beautiful silent film, made for the modern age, and with roots which come from another rural community thousands of miles away in the fields of China. Written in Dust is the story of three young migrants who travel from their countryside home for the promise of a new and better life in the modern city of Beijing.

But the lure of the city and the oppression of love lead to a path of betrayal, corruption, heartache and ultimate tragedy. Shot with classic cinematic sensibility Written in Dust shows a rarely seen side of contemporary Beijing, with a powerful story that resonates universally. The film offers audiences a glimpse into the hidden world of this enigmatic city through a skilful blend of silent film, tragic story and specially composed live music.

Classical Chinese musician, Ling Peng and pianist and guitarist, Andy Middleton, provide an inspired live fusion of traditional Chinese instruments and modern music to underpin the story, which translates without need for words. This is the second chance to see this extraordinary film at Hilgay Village Hall , which was first screened in the summer of 2014, and takes place on Friday 12 th February at 7.30pm , before moving on to St. Mary s Church, Banham on Saturday 5 th March at 7.30pm .

Zephyrinus: The Church Of Our Lady And Saint Thomas Of …

Text and Illustration from Wikipedia – the free encyclopaedia, unless otherwise stated. Church of Our Lady and Saint Thomas of Canterbury, With Tester (above) and Rood Figures (above the Tester), Date: 1922 (object created); 27 February 2007 (original Upload Date). Transferred to Commons using CommonsHelper.

The Monastery was Founded, in 1107, by William d’Aubigny 1 , Chief Butler to King Henry I 2 . William was a prominent Norfolk landowner, with Estates in Wymondham and nearby New Buckenham 3 . The d’Albini (or d’Aubigny) family originated from Saint Martin d’Aubigny, in Normandy 4 .

Later, the Founder’s son, William d’Aubigny, 1st Earl of Arundel 5 , in 1174, Founded Becket’s Chapel, close by in the town, to be served by two Monks from the Priory. William d’Albini’s Monastery was a dependency of the Benedictine 6 Monastery 7 at Saint Alban’s 8 , where his uncle, Richard, was Abbot. Wymondham Priory was relatively small, initially for some twelve Benedictine Monks, but grew in influence and wealth over the coming Centuries.

Disputes between the Wymondham Monks and Saint Alban’s Monks were quite common, and, in 1448, following a successful Petition to the King, the Pope granted Wymondham the Right to become an Abbey 9 in its own Right. A notable Abbot was Thomas Walsingham 10 . Wymondham Abbey Hatchment, now hung in The Ringing Tower.

The Monastery Church was completed by about 1130, and, originally, was Dedicated to The Virgin Mary. Later, following the murder of Saint Thomas Becket 11 in 1170, Becket’s name was added to the Dedication. A modern icon 12 Panel, by the late Rev.

David Hunter, is on display in the Church and tells the story of Thomas’s life in pictures. In 1174, the Founder’s son, also called William d’Aubigny, established a Chapel in the Town, dedicated to Becket, and served by two Monks from the Priory. The Church was originally Cruciform in shape, with a Central Tower and Twin West Towers.

When it was built, stone, from Caen, 13 in Normandy 14 , was shipped specially across the English Channel 15 to face the walls. The Central Tower was rebuilt, in about 1376, with a tall Octagonal Tower (now ruined), which held the Monks’ Bells. In 1447, work on a much taller, single West Tower, began.

This replaced the original Norman Towers and held the Townspeople’s Bells. View of the South Side of Wymondham Abbey, clearly showing the ruined Octagonal Tower and the newer Square Tower. Photo:23 September 2006 (original Upload Date).

From the start, the Church had been divided between Monks’ and Townspeople’s areas, with the Nave and North Aisle serving as Parish Church for the Town (as it still is). This, too, was, from time to time, the cause of disputes which occasionally erupted into lawlessness 17 , though the Vicar of Wymondham was appointed by the Abbot.

King Henry VIII 18 ‘s Dissolution of the Monasteries 19 brought about the closure of Wymondham Abbey, which was surrendered to the King in 1538. The Monks had, apparently willingly, already signed the Oath of Supremacy 20 , and were given generous pensions – Elisha Ferrers, the last Abbot, became Vicar of Wymondham (the fine 16th-Century Sedilia , on the South Side of the Chancel, is said to be his Memorial). The years following the Dissolution, saw the gradual demolition of the Monastic buildings for re-use of the stone.

The Eastern End of the Church (blocked off from the Nave by a solid wall since about 1385) was destroyed, leaving the present Church (at 70 m.) only about half its original length. Repairs to the Church were carried out following Queen Elizabeth I 21 ‘s visit in 1573 (date and initials may be seen on Exterior stonework). This File: 24 January 2008.

Notable features of the Church are the Twin Towers (a landmark for miles around), the Norman Nave, the splendid 15th-Century Angel Roof in the Nave and fine North Aisle Roof. The Church is also remarkable for its high-quality fittings, such as the 1783 Organ, by James Davis, and 1810 Chamber Organ (also by James Davis) and the splendid Gilded Reredos (or Altar Screen), one of the largest works of Sir Ninian Comper 22 .

This was Dedicated in 1921, as a War Memorial, though the Gilding was not finished until 1934. Note, also, the Early-Tudor terracotta Sedilia (see above), the Georgian Candelabrum and Royal Arms of George II, the Carved Mediaeval Font, with modern Gilded Font Cover, and many smaller features, such as Angels, Musicians and figures, Carved on the Roof Timbers and Corbels. The West Tower houses a Peal of ten Bells, re-cast and re-hung in 1967.

Hung in The Bell Tower, are six well-preserved 18th-Century Hatchments 23 . 24 -Shaped Frame, generally on a Black ( Sable 25 ) background, of a deceased’s Heraldic Achievement 26 , that is to say, the Escutcheon 27 showing the Arms 28 , together with the Crest 29 and Supporters 30 of his Family or Person. Regimental Colours, and other Military or Naval Emblems, are sometimes placed behind the Arms of Military or Naval Officers. Such Funerary Hatchments, generally therefore restricted in use to Members of the Nobility or Armigerous Gentry, used to be hung on the wall of a deceased person’s house, and was later transferred to the Parish Church, often within the Family Chapel, therein, which appertained to the Manor House 31 , the family occupying which, generally being Lord of the Manor 32 , held the Advowson (or Patronage) 33 of the Church.

In Germany, the approximate equivalent is a Totenschild 34 , literally “Death Shield”.] (Note The Rood, above The Tester). Photo: Richard Barton-Wood. Date: 4 April 2007 (original Upload Date).
