Wrentham Sign

The town's sign celebrates the Stars and Stripes indicating a strong link with their U.S. namesakes. It's in Norfolk, the USA one, that is, and that's Norfolk County, Massachusetts.

This is in Suffolk and  Stove Solutions on the high street have a mass of 'flue-sets', they supply quite a variety of home burning equipment, you see.

Here is also on a major 5-way-intersection with the North East Suffolk state highway, or, the  A12 if you'd rather, but you can get here on a B road by bike should you be cycling in the area.

There's a shop for some pop, a pair of pubs and Simply Sewing can take care of all your needlecraft needs. They keep irregular hours so you might have to dash for that haberdash.

Not a church per se, the Old Town Hall was built in 1860 in that intimidating and imitable style for weekend worshipping only.

Wrentham - Old Town Hall

He sounded alright the Rev Stephen Clissold whose own money and community mindedness were behind the operation. There were hymns on Sunday for sure but come as you please midweek, non-Christians more than welcome.

It fell into the inevitable state of disrepair in the 1980s when it was sold into private hands. Guffer P.I. can confirm it wastefully remains half boarded up, all it needs is a log burning fire and a few new sets of curtains...

Now where are you going to get those round here?

 
Stephanie's Country Kitchen (Crossways)

Right on the 5-way-intersection, reasonably priced café with parking opposite and a good sideline in Sunday dinners, she says.
