Topic: New Monuments

As mentioned in my post on November 3rd, I went back to my local church yard with camera in hand to photograph the newly discovered monuments which have been hidden by dense vegetation for many years.

Below are two of the three monuments discovered a few days ago:

Spending some more time wandering around my wife and I discovered another three tombs which have recently been rediscovered. I can only conclude that the local Historic Society are on a mission and a very interesting one it is too.

I'll post some photo's of the other discoveries soon!

Take Care Laughing

3rd November 2008
Mood:  lazy
Topic: New Monuments

I've not managed to get out too much lately apart from visits to hospitals and doctors, but on Saturday I had a wander around my local town center and a large church yard which resides there. It must be at least 3 months since I had a walk round there and it is in fact the churchyard which is responsible for the creation of Dark Destiny, I shall explain all that in a minute.

Anyway while checking that all my favorite statues etc were still intact I came across three substantial monuments which were all unfamiliar. On closer inspection and a little head scratching later I recalled that previously there had been nothing more then a very dense bush at the location in question.

The stone work on two of the monument was in pretty good condition considering their age and when I'm next going in that direction I shall take a camera so I can post a pic or two here. But the point I'm trying to make is that in this particular graveyard, which incidentally is over a thousand years old, there must be another ten to twenty large bushes which have grown up around headstones, tombs and statues and now conceals their very existence. I can't help but imagine just what long forgotten monumental gems lay hidden from view in thousands of graveyards all over the UK. I would love to get the shears out and see whats revealed, does anyone know the legalities of such a move?

Time has beat me for the moment as the dinner requires my attention so I'll explain the fundamentals of how Dark Destiny was born and the connection to the above graveyard in another post very soon.

Bye for now Embarassed
