On the way to collect some logs, today, I had ten minutes to spare and called at a small country churchyard - St Leonard's in Balderstone, Lancashired. I had been told by someone, who passed it a week ago, that it might be interesting. Interesting? No, it was amazing! There were many unusual and striking memorials and I quickly moved through the graves to capture some examples on my iPhone4 before the fast approaching thunderstorm reached the village. I am becoming an increasingly enthusiatic fan of iPhoneograpy. It beats carrying around a heavy bag of camera equipment.
Here is the very large headstone that marks the grave of Mercia Heyworth who died on 1 May 1896.
