Five centuries ago, a mural was created in a country church in the north of England, and then hidden under layers of white paint. Looking at it again will be a distraction, the Reverend Mr. Keach tells World War I veteran Tom Birken, who will spend a month in the country restoring the mural. Another veteran, James Moon, is looking for the grave of an ancestor of the patroness of the church who fought in the Crusades. The rector's wife, Alice, comes to see the mural and later visits Birken's bell tower abode, bringing a basket of apples. Will she open the book in which he has pressed the yellow rose she gave him earlier?

My sermon today is derived... is derived... Look here. I only came in place of Mr Ellerbeck today because he's... he's... indisposed. I can't preach. So all I can do is tell you what I'm up to in Oxgodby, in the church there. And if you want to leave or nod off, that's all right by me.
