Rodmell, Monk’s House and Southease

More wonderful weather so we decided to visit Monk’s House the home of Virginia Woolf now preserved by the National Trust, then take a walk along the banks of the River Ouse and return via a church we had passed at Southease on a previous trek but not had time to visit properly.

The church has an interesting stain-glass window in it’s porch “In Memory of John Webber EBBS Rector of this Parish 1928-1943”.

The interior of the house “appears as if they just stepped out for a walk” (according to the National Trust).

From Monk’s House you can walk down to the River Ouse, which is crossed by a bridge which, unusually for the area, feels just as rickety as this image suggests.

The tiny hamlet of Southease contains another church to St Peter, this time with a round tower.
