in the graveyard

Revenge of the formerly deleted post! Let's try this once more since the last time Blogger was pitted against us!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been in England for a wedding and to muck about in the counrtyside (& the city) for a spell.  I spent most of my nights in a small village where "the Brit's" parents live near Par in Cornwall.  I've been there many times but we are always so busy with day trips and other happenings that there are still a few unexplored areas in their village I have wanted to investigate. One of the being...the graveyard...
They technically call it a "church yard", as I understand, referring to particular the type of grave yard/church combination.
Sadly, I don't know much about the history of this place, other than it being the site a priory which dated as far back as the 1500s - the church was erected in the 1800s, I believe.
It was spooky being there as the sun went down.  As we left the bells started chiming. very eerie timing.

 This is glorious. I have a penchant for old graveyards and Nashville has quite a few interesting ones, but there's something so amazing and almost humbling about being in Europe where the history dates back so much further.
