St Mary's at Goosnargh

I have not been inside the St. May's church at Goosenargh.
According to Wikipedia it is 900 years old. However this needs further investigation.
This page should grow when I have the opportunity to visit. My photos are clich├ęs apart from the two servicemen who are buried in the graveyard.
View of the church. This is from the carpark.

A sundial just to the left of the path, just beyond the lych gate

From the rea r of the church. These are very interesting wooden windows. Seems the roof has been slated fairly recently.

This almost identical photo is on the internet!
An early grave, Some letters are visible.
