It is a victorian house and was originally a rectory. Next to it was this very pretty but now disused little church.
It was in an isolated setting but judging by the size of the rectory there must have been a lot more people living in the area in Victorian times. Most of the gravestones were old, mid to late nineteenth century but nothing much after that apart from a couple of new ones 1975 and 2000. It seemed a sad little place as if it had been locked up and forgotten with the churchyard all overgrown.
The River Wye was very pretty and calm but in places the damage caused by the floods last month could still be seen. We spotted debris in the over-hanging trees about 10-12 feet above the current water level, very difficult to imagine on a pleasant summer evening.
We spent the two days walking in and around the Forest of Dean, a quiet end to the summer holidays.
