  4. It was indeed, George - there's a stained-glass portrait of him (1950s I think) in the church, and you can buy a William of Ockham mug if you fancy it...

    1. Is it a pretty town? Would you recommend a detour for anything beyond this rather lovely statue?

  5. Does the mug come with a razor?

  6. Ho ho - alas no razor Guy.
    A village rather than a town zmkc - interesting chiefly for its Lovelace estate buildings, which have rather fine brickwork. The church has an almost unique 7-light Early English east window, not originally part of the building - no one's sure where they got it from, perhaps nearby Newark Priory (a picturesque ruin now).
