As standing stones go, Chris, this is a fine collection.
Chris: Let us sincerely hope master William Harris of Lower Slaughter had the send off he deserved back in 1794..

I love to study old headstones.
Chris: And our Cotswold churchyards in wealthy wool-country are full of grand ones Philine
Ta photo est belle mais je ne suis pas fan des cimetières.
Chris: Thank you Martine: by contrast I find cemeteries engaging and very interesting

These are in great condition for their age. Someone researching the Harris Family would be delighted to find these
Chris: You bet they would Lisl. This was taken on my Cotswold journey with Pauline
These look pretty old Tiff, yet the stones look in good shape. It must have been quality stone, or workmanship, unless these are protected in so,e way from the worst of the weather.
Chris: Out in the open in Lower Slaughter Chad
There is lovely carving on these old stones.
Chris: And they have passed the test of time
i wonder how long each stone took to be finished, Chris.
Chris: I doubt if we will ever know that Ayush

A couple of fine examples - I usually enjoy a mooch around the graveyard more than a visit inside the church.
Chris: I enjoy both Mike, both give different pleasures to me

Some fascinating headstones - are they part of your family history Chris?
Chris: If only Anne but I do have some nice family ones down in Dorset
My word these are old Chris, they have some fine designs on them.
Chris: Wonderful aren't they Brian
These are quite unusual headstones
Chris: They represent the riches to be gleaned from wool in the Cotswolds I suspect
Creeping on apace!
Chris: But let us not concentrate too much on that aspect Tom..
Aren't those wonderful! Nice of you to photograph them so lovingly.
Chris: The sun illustrated them to perfection Elizabeth
