This is the church in the village of Oare where on the alter steps the fictional character Lorna was shot by Carver Doone during her marriage to John Ridd. We have just spent a fantastic ten days at the home of our friends who live next door.
Most of the bracken around us has turned gold, brown or almost a dead brown, black but not this one which still thinks it is mid summer. Bracken is one of the oldest ferns with fossil records of over 55 million years old having been found.
This tree must be very old, around the other side it has tunnels under it's roots, a perfect place for foxes etc. but as it is on the gamekeepers patch, there is nothing in there. This was taken on our walk the other morning, it was waterproofs today no weather for a camera.
