The church of St Mary the Virgin in Hampstead Norreys was a church I had on my list to visit for a while and still is. The photos you will see are external ones as I found when I got there a service was in progress. The weather was in my favor either being rather misty.
A plaque on the wall of the churchyard giving the heritage of the village and it's older name
The footpath leading to the church porch
Looking west up the churchyard
The west end were the bell tower and church clock can be found
Looking back up the churchyard it can be seen to be long with many old graves
Over in he corner a couple of family graves can be seen.
Walk out of the churchyard and across a lane is the new cemetery.
Even the cemetery has old graves and is on a hillside
Heading back into the churchyard and past the bell tower to walk down the south side of the church
You can see a bricked up doorway used by the parishioners in days gone by
Further along I came across a family tomb made from cast Iron
Shaped like a pyramid it is one of the more unusual ones I have seen.
