I would think his body weight would undoubtedly lead to diabetes. In his later years, his waistline had grown to 60 inches and he weighed around 25 stone. Apparently, he had a huge appetite which included meat at every meal.
This is the old church at Penalt, high above the river Wye near Redbrook in the Forest of Dean. It's quite a climb up through the woods to get there! The original bit of the tower is 13th century and, although it doesn't show up well in my photo the southern aisle - the little one on the right is "squint" to allow the congregation to see the altar. When we were there we met a family showing their daughter where her great grandparents were buried in the churchyard.
