I have visited these church ruins many times including the other ruin five minutes drive away. I have not been to them for a few years now so thought whilst in the area I would pop in. I always enjoy seeing them just sitting there slowly having nature take over. St Mary's has always been my favourite one. I have no idea when the church was built, but it is centuries old. And this and its brother St john's were both abandoned around the 1880's with falling numbers. A new church was built in the village centre to replace the pair off them.

You can get up the tower but its a bit dogy as the floor have all gone through, so you stick close to the steps.



Looking up to the top.

Probably the saddest grave I have seen, a couple lost all six children in about a week to scarlett fever.

It's lovely there.
All the way through I kept thinking that it'd be ideal for more unusual photography. Models and surreal stuff.
I wonder what it'd be like if shot using clever use of gels?
