Just lovely! And interesting to see the cemetary right there with the church. I recently learned that Boston was the first location in the US (in the Colonial days) to move its burial grounds out away from the center of town / next to the church. They simply had run out of room. This was seen as something strange to do. However, it caught on, and my town (Holliston) was the second to follow suit. :smile:
I never knew that cemeteries next to the church was "how its done" and this was an interesting lesson. Your photo further cements the history. :smile:
And Gretchen, there are one or two churches that, for reasons of space and/or re-development, have had their graveyards reduced in size. But most churches I know of have a burial ground around them with the exception of all but the very new and "city" churches.
And Mike, I wandered up to the castle in Farnham but, being a tight-wad as I am, wasn't going to pay the £3 to get in. :biggrin:
