  1. Oh my goodness!! How beautiful that churchyard is!!

    What is the age of the tombstones 🪦 – can you make out any of the years or have they weathered away?

    Wow! That is stunning photo ❤️

      1. There are three graveyards here – St Mary’s is as old as St Clements [where the photos are from] and St Peters. The biggest and oldest l think is St Clements l will have a looksee and see where the oldest stones are as you have now sparked my curiosity also 🙂

      2. Back in New England – we have many old old cemeteries – nothing like that out here … nothing as old out here …

        Sometimes in Massachusetts or Maine you could find graves from 1600’s…

        I always loved to imagine the time and the life … also loved reading names you could make out… some names no longer in use.

        Always interesting ❤️

        Be interesting to see your oldest in those – that is exciting!

      3. I will look and you are right with regards the names, l find some of the surnames especially interesting. But l have seen a few old English names on the stones, like Jacob, Abraham, Olive, Walter and Edith. Whilst you occasionally hear children or the elderly called these names, they aren’t as popular as they once were 🙂
