Visited a few years ago while on my way back from Henley Road Cemetery. It's a church I had passed may times and have always wanted to visit, finally made it on this occasion, Unfortunately the church was not open so I could get no internals views. The Church dates from 1162 Walter Gifford, Earl of Buckingham gave the church to Notley Abbey, Buckinghamshire. Following the dissolution of the monasteries, Christ Church, Oxford became the patron. During the civil war in 1643 the tower was partly destroyed. It has a ring of 8 bells the oldest bears the inscription ‘Prayes God 1637. The 1663 weather vane now resides by the Altar.
The church path is now a footpath running past the church and looking at this area makes me think it's missing a lych gate
Walking round to the North Aisle you can see a smaller extension which is most likely the vestry
Heading along the North side aisle
Which heads back quite away
Going over to the roadside
Some of it is hidden over in a corner
The steps leading to the north side of the church anc churchyard. On the left is a headstone lent against another headstone and dated 1766
This is the churchyard on the Western end of the church
Not quit sure the relevance of this stone in the church wall
Over to the South of the church hidden under the yew is this Obelisk. The tomb on the right caught my eye
The inscription on the base of the obelisk
I spotted this cast iron grave marker amongst the ivy in the churchyard
I hope you enjoyed my little tour round the churchyard.
Please remember the people who were killed in Nice on Thursday Night
