We had our lunch in the Churchyard in June of 2008 in the company of a pheasant and two youngsters. They came within a yard to share our sandwiches, and we thought they would be better off staying in the Churchyard!

I have a painting of this church painted by my grandfather George Breakwell who was born in the area in 1869. My great-grandmother Louisa and possibly other ancestors lie in the graveyard here. A typical English country church..

Hi minniecat

Good luck with your family research, you can find a lot on the internet these days but sometimes the only way is to visit the church itself.

A sign of the times is that nowadays you have to have prior permission to obtain a key.

Greetings from Wolverhampton, Peter

I visited a couple of months ago and the church was open. I was the only visitor at the time and it was a bit dark and spooky. On leaving, as I opened the door, a man was about to enter. I think I gave him quite a fright. I really need to go back and see someone formally and check the church records, if possible. regards ....
