Lake District Leftovers #6

One that didn’t make it in the series earlier this year. This is the view from the churchyard of St.Johns parish church in Keswick, and on a fine day one could lay there in ones grave in calm repose with that fine view out to the mountains beyond.

I think those at rest here would be very pleased to see this lovely image!
Brian Walbey: I'm sure they would Elizabeth, in more ways than one.

I suppose the worms have learned to appreciate their surroundings, Brian.
Brian Walbey: That's how they have probably ended up by now Ray.

A fine thought - and a lovely view! Actually, I saw in the Lakes tourists sitting on the graves to eat there fish & chips, I was a bit upset, sorry.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine view even though it had been raining till just before I took it. I also hate seeing people using graves of any type for seats etc.

All very proud and erect. I like reading the inscriptions on the stones; they often bring a lump to my throat.
Brian Walbey: Yes some inscriptions can be very interesting.
Natural stone weathers over the years and this mellowing adds character. Sadly many church authorities now specify uniform stones often made from polished non local material such as marble
Brian Walbey: We often have items on our local TV news regarding headstones in church and grave yards where the local authorities won't allow certain things or indeed knock them over for H.& S.reasons if they feel like it.
Nice view of the graveyard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Preyi.
A fine resting place Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Janet, what a fine outlook.
Great one again, I'd like to be here...later
Brian Walbey: I'd like to be there again, but not permanently just at this time smile
A lovely perspective through the graveyard Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes and it's all nice and neat and tidy isn't it.
Glad you shared this one Brian! quite an eye opener..
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, the people of this church obviously keep the churchyard nice and tidy.
What a beautiful place to be spending eternity.
Brian Walbey: I could certainly think of worse. Thanks for your comment.
