Another Sunday, another church

This is St. Mary's, Newton Valence, Hampshire. We passed this fine church on one of our monthly walks at the end of July.

 

The Anglican church of St Mary's was restored in 1871 and is faced in flint. The nave and chancel are early English, about 1300; the west tower is also early English, but has an embattled top, made of brick and dated to 1812. There are five bells in the tower, the largest weighing nine hundredweight (approximately 458 kilogrammes). The tower's black-faced clock was restored as a Millennium Project. There are two piscinas and a large Norman font.

 

Charles Wilson, 1st Baron Moran, Sir Winston Churchill's personal physician, is buried in the churchyard.

The yew tree next to the church is one of the most venerable in the district now that the famous yew at Selborne Church has died. Its age has been estimated at about 1,000 years

I'm sorry for the lack of comments yesterday. I had a day in Bristol with Lisl, Astrid, Ginnie, Bill and Chris and I just collapsed when I got home and had dinner; fell asleep immediately after dinner :(

Are you suggesting my SC Buddies are a tiresome bunch, Alan? smile

This is a seriously ugly building...might be improved with a wrecking ball...

End on the positive...That grass is...umh...green!
