After my visit there I wished I'd taken a wide shot, just like this one! (I also thought the stained glass window would be difficult to capture). Great to find this pic.

We visited this lovely old church in May of 2010 & were told at that time by the current minister that the graveyard was being excavated by archeologists that summer. Do you know if this project was completed & the graves identified?

I don't know Sharie. I'll try to find out.
