Beautiful.
Interesting facts.

My dad says that graves were made in churchyards because people were superstitious about vampires and they believed that graves keep the church building safe from vampires in the old days.

I like the mist in these photo's. Looks really cool.  Smiley Coolsmiley

That doesnt sound so far fetched really, when you think of it....specially with the little villages in Devon alone ...............

Every village in the UK had at least 1 to 3 church's and graveyards, but over the 1'00's of yrs they have dissappeared, which is a really sad thing as I adore visiting them and talking to the ones that have passed-over............

St. Mary's Church, in the village centre, has a rood screen forty-two feet long, and the stained-glass window dates from the fifteenth century. The rood screen is very unusual in being complete from end to end but also has the original coving, cornice and cresting. The wainscoting has... painted figures. Between 1681 and 1834 the village was served by just three vicars: John Prince, John Fox and John Edwards.The church was once visited by William III and more recently by the Duke of Kent.[citation needed] American soldiers were stationed in the village in the build up to D-Day and were billeted in tents opposite the church, in which items of that time are on display. American veterans revisited Berry Pomeroy for the 60th anniversary of the invasion.



To celebrate the turning of the millennium in 2000, a new bench was erected opposite the War Memorial. Every summer, a fete is held in the grounds of the manor house next to the church, where maypole dancing, Devonshire cream teas and a coconut shy may be enjoyed. The church features in the final wedding scene of Ang Lee's film Sense and Sensibility.........
