"Soon death was everywhere. Fathers abandoned their sick sons. Lawyers refused to come and make out wills for the dying. Friars and nuns were left to care for the sick, and monasteries and convents were soon deserted, as they were stricken, too. Bodies were left in empty houses, and there was no one to give them a Christian burial.”
As the country begins to emerge from lockdown, travel and exploration still feel like luxuries best reserved for future times. Apart from a much needed day trip to Dartmoor, I plan to remain at home enjoying my garden and hopefully catching up with work on this website. Stay safe.
