With that reduced population, Chris, the church now has roof for a modest tea room at one end...
Chris: Hidden England Ray. Our out of the way places are a bit different to yours..
I like the old tree - it's seen some things
Chris: Churchyard yews such as this one have probably seen it all over the centuries Ellie

Oh, I like this quiet, peaceful image very much, what a beautiful drystone wall! I would like to visit this village one day.

A beautiful part of the world and a fine little church with lots of history to it.
Chris: Very much so..
On pourrait se croire en Bretagne (France )
Cette chapelle ressemble beaucoup aux notres , l'arbre etant partie integrante de cet environnement !!
Bon Dimanche
Chris: Thank you Claudine. Yew trees are very much part of UK church lore, they can often grow to a great age, often becoming older than the church itself

One of the men on my Family Tree died near here - falling out of a Walnut Tree
Chris: How bizarre is that Lisl!
A charming little church
Chris: Yes it is
The tree is so interesting. It seems to be in such an aged state that it is becoming hollowed rather than hallowed.
Chris: It is probably thousands of years old
This is the sort of church that I like ...simple ...just like me.
Chris: You do yourself a disservice ole bean..
A fine building and churchyard, Chris. That wall is impressive.
Chris: Thank you kindly Frank
reminds me of watching episodes of Vicar of Dibley and visiting Syde in 2008
how do 80 people afford to build such a church?
