Continuing on with the queries arising from Easter holiday explorations...
recently I have come across a couple of examples of carvings of footprint (or
more precisely shoeprints) close to churches. At Oddington (Gloucestershire)
there is an example in the church porch, and outside (I think it was) Llangynog
(Powys) there were a whole load carved graffitti like on a table tomb outside
the church door along with carved hand prints. On a recent documentary on
Channel 4 about Captain Bligh they showed a lead roof in Cumbria on which
Fletcher Christian had carved round his foot. This and the fact that the tomb at
Llangynog was 18th century, suggests gives a broad date for the practice. Do
these carving have any significance / meaning or is just 'one of those things
they did before the tv'
