As I trundled around the world the other day I noticed the aged door on the Norman arch at Felsted Church. An aged door, although I know not how aged, with this large knocker on the front. How much more reliable is such a thing on the door in comparison to the electric bell that only 'ding dongs' if the button is pushed correctly, if the batteries work, if the thing is in the mood. A dirty big knocker like this will always get an answer as such an iron brute will be heard all around the town when the postman calls. Not that the postman would be delivering to the church tower I suppose but you never know. You do know he will ensure you hear him knock however. Well you would if it was me!
