A view out of a story, Amelia! A photo with a lot of expression, a bit scary like the mood around the yew. It must belong to the same grounds, I think it's the church we see just a glimpse of. I hope to pass in this region on one of my next visits in the UK.

Hello May, Thanks for your viewpoint. It's so interesting to read comments like this. In fact the whole site is innocuous, or at least I thought it was until I read what you said! Perhaps I might be inclined to visit the church grounds again on a moody day to see what I find! It's only a walk up the road.

Greetings, Amelia

wonderful old gates ~ marvellous twisty old trunk ~ is it Yew Suisse May says yes and she ought to know ~ I'm not so sure ~ but of course ~ the Yew and churchyards go together hand in glove ~ mystery lies up the path

thanks Mira and I look forward to following the story

The story is appearing gradually **Mira and Nick.

By the way Mira the distribution of moss, which you so carefully noticed, is because of the orientation of the lychgate.

The photos should be there now Mira, but maybe they're floating in the ether.

Greetings, Amelia

You are right Domi, it is an ancient gate leading to the church in the village. Thank you again for this gracious comment. The words sound much more beautiful in French.

Merci a vous.

Greetings to France, Amelia
