A new addition has appeared in the Ab Kettleby tower – a bell-rope spider!
Ab Kettleby is a home to a number of horses in the various stables and studs dotted around the village. The most famous of which would be Desert Orchid, who spent his summers in the village, and lent his name to help raise funds for the restoration of the church a few years ago.
So as a nod to Dessie, and our other equine neighbours, the spider has been formed from six horse shoes, each providing a hook for a rope. A welcome addition to the tower which is starting to feel a bit more ‘professional’!
