The Old Buckenham pagoda

Scaffolding can be pretty
Proving a safe platform for the workers to use when repairing the octagonal tower of All Saints Church in Old Buckenham has been a major job. But the skillful scaffolders have provided a structure with a beauty of its own.
Seen in nice weather across the churchyard it provides a different but attractive picture.

It also looks different when floodlit during the night. Last night, as part of the remembrance of the start of the First World War, the floodlighting was switched off between 10pm and 11pm leaving just a single light to shine out over the village. Also at 10pm a single bell tolled out and was rung one hundred times.
