My apologies Diapason. Trying to do to many things at once here.

My sentiments regards the churchyards to granderog.

It was granderog, not me, who was caring for the churchyard.


Not a mill pond as far as I know, but I expect granderog will be able to give more information than myself.

Very nice to see someone caring for a churchyard and its monument, well done Diapason. Shame there aren't a few more people like yourself to deal with all the rest?

Is the lake a mill pond?

I was certain that you would know that one. granderog as we are both from the same area. My Granddad was born in one of the cottages on that really `nasty` bend in the road between Grove End Farm and Bredgar.

Used to catch newts there when I was a kid. :)  Let someone else guess.
Cat the sausage graves in your painting were smotherd in Ivy and saplings before they were cleared last year.
Cat here,s one of the graves before and after. later burial than the ones in the picture.Broken bits of cross were just visible buried in ground.

Thanks Granderog, I`ll look out for you when I`m next in the area.


You should be able to get this one - it`s not too far away from the previous one.

Well done Diapason for getting it and grandarog for posting and the work on the churchyard.

You may already know of this painting of Upchurch church dated 1765?

Well Done ,Diapason,
                              Indeed it is in our lovely Churchyard of St Mary's.
As you found the Church is well worth a visit.It is nearly always open ,if not Key is available from house across the road.
                             You and others may have seen me renovating some of the rather neglected old Graves when you drove by. I have been compared to Burke and Hare ,when folk have seen me with grave kerbs and headstones spread around a grave before I have back filled and reset them. Luckily I have the Rectors Blessing. :)


Over to you for the next one.

I reckon that it`s the tower of St. Mary`s, Upchurch. It`s a bit more than a guess as I recognised your location from the `old` forum, plus the fact that I have driven past the church many times and. with the help of a lady who lived opposite who gave me access to the church, I took some photos of the interior.

Thanks KeithG,
Nice to have you back on the scene.
Feeling a bit guilty as I used Google to solve your Picture.
Try this one ,where did I photograph this HorseChestnut at 10 o'clock on a Sunny June morning.
