Therapists in Christchurch - PE7

Christchurch is a village in the Fenland district of Cambridgeshire, England. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 Census was 833. The village is sited close to the Cambridgeshire/Norfolk border. Christchurch has a small church, which was built in 1863 and consecrated in 1865. This is the source of Christchurch's claim to fame. The rector of the church from 1917 to 1928 was The Rev. Henry Sayers, father of the novelist, Dorothy L. Sayers. He and his wife were buried in unmarked graves in the churchyard at the behest of their daughter Dorothy. A plaque has since been installed in the churchyard to commemorate their interment. One of Sayers' novels, The Nine Tailors is set in the Christchurch and Upwell area. The village was allegedly named after the church because of the two large oil paintings hanging in the nave. One depicts Christ crowned with thorns and the other his descent from the cross. Both were brought from Italy by the church’s architect, Sir Roger Pratt. Wikipedia
