Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 21st May, 2020)
St David’s Church
Thanks Dennis, I can just about see my grandparents gravestone, my auntie and uncle's also. NO longer living in Aspull I don't get to visit here very often so the picture is somewhat special for me. Thanks again Dennis keep them coming.
Peaceful scene Dennis. I love to splashes of red flowers against the green grass. Yes, its the colours of the photo I like.
I like a walk around a churchyard on a sunny day. I have only been in St. David's once, some years ago now, with a friend who pointed out to me a gravestone on which was the date April 31st! I like this photo; you can almost feel the cool air on the shadowed path to the right compared with the warmth in the sunny area.
That is a good photo Dennis - not from the usual angle.
I tend (when I can travel) our memorials in St Elizabeth's. No grass cutting going on, older stones distorted.
Without people to look after them, the memorials can never be permanent.
The cost of opening a grave today is extortionate, making cremation much less expensive.
Your getting about on your daily exercise Dennis, three in a row .
Nice photo taken from the side gate ,both my parents are laid to rest in St Davids ,not much space left now in the church grounds.
Hi Walt, hope your keeping well ,all good here in Aspull take care.
Irene, there is a gravestone here to a child and there is a quotation on it that goes “is it well with the child?” And then the answer “It is well”. I imagine that it is a quote from the Bible but, not being overly religious I wouldn’t know, It did make an impression on me.
I also like a wonder around a grave yard, yesterday I was wondering around
St Mary's Church, in Kirkby Lonsdale, there is a view from the grave yard to die for its called Ruskin's View
Dennis S, yes it's 2 Kings. 4:26. Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well.
Thankyou for that information about the little child's gravestone, Dennis S...I find that very moving.
Yes David, I’ve done more walking these last couple of weeks than I’ve done in a long time.
I must say I have really enjoyed it, especially with the good weather we’ve been having.
I just stick my little camera in my pocket and then follow my nose wherever it leads me.
David, yes all well over here in North Yorkshire. Rather full in the church yard is a understatement, I understand there are around 11,000 buried in this little area, Hard to believe isn't it David. Good to know you are all well also.
My paternal grand father is buried here. I never knew himself been here, not sure of his first name, either John or Richard. Surname Taylor
That's funny, I was in Kirkby Lonsdale yesterday too but not looking around grave yards with a view to die for.! :(
Thanks for that Cyril, I’m not unduly sentimental but I must admit that quotation stuck in my mind. I will look it up.
My post seems to have got itself mixed up, blame spellchecker. Should be.... never knew him, never been here.
PeeBee I went to the bikers car park but couldnt get in so I parked on the other side of the river near to were the Police diver van, I might have caught a glimpse of you on my video if you was stood around with the rest of the bikers
Irene, unfortunately the 31st April gravestone (PARR) is now broken in two. There are some other interesting ones in Haigh..one to a man killed by his horse and another which says accidently killed. Quite a few to miners killed in the pits and many servants of the Earl at Haigh Hall.
Thankyou Neil. It's a long time since I've been there.
