I’ve not been out much this week and looking through my photos they are either food related or review related. So I’ve gone for an older photo of our local church. The Church is Norman in origin so it really is a beautiful landmark building.
We often walk through graveyards, I visit my family, most of which are now underground. Some of the gravestones in this cemetery are very old. Like this one from 1761.
When I see old stones like this I like to read the name out loud. Just think how long it’s been since poor John Guise has had his name spoken out loud. My favourite author, the late Sir Terry Pratchett, said ‘Do you not know that man is not dead so long as his name is still spoken.’
This week was also the second anniversary of Terry Pratchett’s passing, I’m sure his name is still being said aloud.

I find it so interesting exploring churches
Thank you for linking up
The church is so often the focal point of a town or village, I hope they stay even in an era where religion isn't always at the forefront for all.
I always find churches and their grounds so interesting….
Fantastic photos x
Lovely old church! Our church is Norman too and I must say I do like reading the gravestones.
That's a wonderful quote by Terry Pratchett and I'd never really thought about it before like that!
I love visiting old churchyards and reading the stones of long passed ancestors. I live too far away to do it other than on holidays but from now on I shall always say their names out loud #MySundayPhoto
Beautiful church. Such interesting places. I say their names out loud too 🙂 #MMBC
Our local church has a very old graveyard attached to it. I'm quite surprised how many local names still live in the village when I look at the gravestones.
