    Good report on one of my favorite subjects. A lot of the time headstones brake, we had one go in our churchyard due to the frost and it fell on someone. I've been to many churchyards that still have parishioners and see broken headstones piled up and corners covered in weeds and nettles. Neglect seems to come with old churchyards.

    Enjoyable read with some great photos. Looks such a sad place to be, such a shame that these places are ruined.

    Good report there, I should really head back there and go up the stairs - I didnt do them first time, the entrance was too small and claustrophobic for my liking :)
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    Don't worry about it we all get forgotten about sooner or later
    It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down

    I used to live up the road from here, we always called it Thunderidge Old Church and its ghost stories were legendary ! On Haloween night now the police have to set up road blocks to stop people going up there, I am certain you used to able to get up the stairs to the first and second levels, I think they finally got blocked off as they became dangerous (I could be wrong).. nice to see a blast from my youth, thanks for the report
    If there is a fence round it then it must be worth looking at !

    Beautiful photographs. The more I visit and photograph old cemeteries the less I want to be buried.

    Its very sad, i think we all feel like this when we explore a place be it a forgotten manor house or a neglected farm, i like to think though that by taking a photograph im salvaging something, a memory and although i never knew the people or even what they looked like by being in the place and capturing it on camera, im saying you and the place you lived, are not forgotten. Thanks for sharing:)
