all saints church in newtown linford has stood where it does in one form or another since 1537.
at some point in that period, a clock was fitted to the tower.
for the last 3 years it has told me on a daily basis whether i can go and ride the extra 4 mile loop before heading to work or that i should take the direct route to work.
7.15am is the cut-off time.
this was the view this morning, but i still went the long way.
on mornings like this morning, work can wait.
