Holy Trinity, Blythburgh, has 15th century poppy heads representing the seven deadly sins – Gluttony holds up his ample pot belly. The architect Morris Lapidus called his autobiography Too Much is Never Enough in honour of his monuments to excess. I’m intrigued by blue rope, its ubiquity and seeming indestructability, but a glutton for it, a seeker after excess? Probably not. I had reckoned without suffering a surfeit of blue when snooping through the windows of the German Ocean Mansion in Shingle Street.
