Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding.

I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop...
It was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

New website for St Mary Magdalen Brighton


The excellent Fr Blake in Brighton and his parishioners have launched their new website for their parish as can be seen in Fr Ray's recent post St Mary Magdalen's New Website.

I have always enjoyed my visits to the church and the welcome one receives there from priest and congregation. I also appreciate the range of things it does and offers - it is a church well worth going to find it if you are visiting Brighton, or indeed, a good reason in itself for going to Brighton.
