Two guys are really trying to break the DaVinci code by breaking some real stuff at churches. Check this out in today’s Daily Mail UK:
Until recently, the 14th century church was a place to enjoy some peace and contemplation. But now things have radically changed for St Luke’s Church in the village of Hodnet, Shropshire, with visitors lured by claims that it is linked to the Holy Grail mystery. And some, it seems, will go to any lengths to discover the beautiful church’s secrets – even if it means taking a hammer and chisel to the walls.
The Reverend Charmian Beech blamed a pair of ‘Da Vinci Code-style’ treasure hunters for causing thousands of pounds worth of damage as they searched for clues to help them find the Grail. Stonework was chipped off in four areas inside her church as the offenders tried to remove blocks from the walls to see what is behind them, she said.
The chief suspects are two shadowy Italian men who visited the church that day.
