    Default St james church of the fomer village of bawsey june 2011


    Well another site myself and Kathyms visited this weekend was the ruin of ST James church of the former village of bawsey.
    Well The late Saxon church Situated in open undulating farmland just east of Kings Lynn, is the only remains left of the old village of bawsey which was demolished around the 16th century where the owners of the time decided to destroy the village and use the land for farming
    So on with my shots and hope you enjoy


































    THANKS FOR LOOKING
