Place: Stretton en le Field, St Michaels Church

Location: Wooden Roof Boss (split into 2 parts?) Confirmed as being in the nave by Jenny Miller & Gary Truss they stated that “It appears to have a moth and some sort of mammal, suggestions from friends include a dormouse, fox or weasel! Whilst it has been secured with modern screws, it would seem to be quite old, the church is described as "With late 18th-century box pews and other fittings, but with no major Victorian restoration, it is an uncommon survival of a Medieval church”
