New steps and moved fencing




It seems new steps have been installed at Crunwere Church leading down to the old lower yard section.  Also the fence around the church has been moved.
This work seems to have been initiated from the church’s head office in Cardiff and not locally.
I have nt been able to get there yet to take any pictures.

Crunwere Churchyard July 2013

The Oriel family grave is inside that undergrowth somewhere

The overgrown porch

Gate is now unlocked so you have access to the lower and older yard - 
if you can get through the grass and weeds.

Graves inside the fence disappearing beneath the grass.

Top field above the newest graves.

Top field again.

Top row of graves - these are the newest ones and even they have a neglected air about them.

Top two rows of graves - grass is as tall as the headstones.

Believe it or not this is the path down to the gate.

Looking towards the porch.

Gravestones inside the fence almost buried under vegetation.

Looking towards the porch - under that tangle of undergrowth
 is a cobbled path - somewhere.

Track back across the field to the lane - the picture does not do it justice.
It is so overgrown a car can hardly make the journey across it.

First impressions of Crunwere Church and graveyard - what a sorry sight.
