Worlington Church - Simply click to enlarge... then close new window to returnThe Proclamation Of 1977

 The present Lord of the Manor of Scales alias Tindall's, Dr. H. Carroll Parish, takes an active interest in local affairs even though he lives in the U.S.A. In Worlington Church is hung a framed illuminated proclamation, beautifully written on calfskin vellum, bearing the arms of the Scales and Tindall families as well as Dr. Parish's personal arms:

"A Proclamation by the Lord of the Manor of Scales alias Tindalls in Worlington in the County of Suffolk. TO ALL & SINGULAR TO WHOM THESE PRESENTS MAY COME - GREETINGS. Praise be to God that in the church of All Saints, Worlington, worship and service have been offered by its Ministers and Parishioners throughout more than a thousand years. Under the Sign of the Cross its members have waged the Christian war against poverty, disease and unbelief. Its vital role in bringing the Gospel to a world in need of guidance, Christian ethics and charitable activities shall be commemorated appropriately. THE LAST WEEK IN MAY of each year is hereby duly proclaimed as "All Saints Church Week" in the areas falling within the jurisdiction of the Manor of Scales alias Tindalls.

Given at Worlington in the County of Suffolk the eleventh day of September in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and seventy-seven."
