We hadn't expected to find any graves here under a pathway from the North door, which seemed like an ideal place to construct a soakaway.

The bones were reburied nearby, Sandy said the words of the service that was recently used for the reburial of  the remains of King Richard third.

Nicholas Warns Architects Ltd. assisted us in our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund and were responsible for overseeing the Repair Project for our church.

Iain's Talk during our Day of Celebration and Thanksgiving marking the completion of the Repair Project.
