The Ruin

To the left of the lodge is the remains of a second chapel.  Until a couple of weeks ago this was covered with ivy and full of bramble and ivy.  The overgrowth has now been cut back but there is still quite a bit of work left to bring the inside down to its original floor level.  As the clearance progressed a lot of masonry came to light.  It appears that fragments of broken headstones have been left here – it would be interesting to trace their original grave locations.  Click Here to see some photos:

  4. I have read this several times and though all the dates become confusing , It has crossed my mind whether or not its possible Harry could in fact be the son of Janet S Coke ,? would she have been in her 30s a spinster when Harry was born ? I know in those days an illegitimate child was often fostered out for awhile and at a later date brought back into the family as a Ward or distant family member , the words on the grave and her bequest to him plus them finally being together in my mind completes the story , Fanciful I know and some of you will soon be able to blow holes in it ?
