After dropping off the middle child at the Sea Cadets, I stopped off at a local church to take a few snaps. This is quite an interesting little church. It dates back to the 11th Century and sits alone in a field - about a mile from the village that it serves. It sits alone as the village houses that once surrounded it were one-by-one burned to the ground during the Black Death that plagued the 1340s - the stone built church being the only building that survived. The village was eventually rebuilt on the hill nearby, but the church still stands alone. There are some pretty interesting gravestones in the yard, which I'll go back to at some point - I missed them tonight as it was getting dark. I intended to catch the sunset colours, but just missed them. Anyway - here's the church.

Thought I'd start this little blog to let people know what we get up to. Some personal stuff thrown in the mix too.
