    Did you get any pictures of the church? Shame this place has just been neglected. Love the images though. Thanks!

    Wow, amazing pics. They really do have the 'hammer horror' look about them. Great place. Cheers Stesh. :)

    It's beautiful and no doubt very scary at night. Do you know how far the graves date back to? :)

    Apologies if I'm speaking for stesh (it is his thread after all) here but that was a question I asked myself too. When I was there I saw one grave dated 1704. I'd imagine there are older graves around but a lot of it is totally covered over with greenery.

    [Edit - I have some pics of this place too. Would it be better to start a new thread or just post my photos here? Sorry, still new here!]

    Please feel free to start a new thread, Marquischacha. :)
    People who go together on the same explore are encouraged to put their pics & report on the same thread, but those who go at a different time can start their own.
