SUMMER TIME AND THE LIVING IS (CHAPEL OF) EASEY
Here's a model of Brigg's old Chapel of Ease - dedicated to St Mary.
It was built in 1699 on the site now occupied by St John's Church.
Ken Harrison, who has supplied the pictures, believes there was an earlier C of E place of worship - possibly dedicated to St James.
He points out: "The Feast of St James was on the same date (25th July) as the original date of Brigg Fair (Julian calendar)."
