Visit Bingham and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Bingham, Nottinghamshire. Its main interest is the Early English Perpendicular-style steeple of All Saints'. It has one of the finest broach spires in the country, broad and strong with corner buttresses and an additional buttress in the middle of each side. Notable lancet windows set into the thickness of the wall support two-light lancets higher up.
A wooden floorstone commemorates one of the most famous of Nottinghamshire warriors. Sir Thomas Rempstone - rechristened by Shakespeare, probably for reasons of metre, John Ramston — appears in Richard II as of the company listening to John of Gaunt declaiming: “This royal throne of Kings, this sceptred Isle”. Sir Thomas helped Henry defeat Richard and claim the crown.
At the west end of the church there is a carving of the Seven Deadly Sins, and a sequence of memorials culminates in the figure of Ann Harrison, who worshipped at this place for all of her 99 years. A fish-seller, she put every other half-crown she earned into the collection. Her photograph is displayed at the beginning of the Book of Honour to the Fallen for which she paid with her contributions. It is laid on a splendid lectern given to the church by the men who came back.
