Photographer's Note

St Peter's church in the tiny village of Buckland in the moor, on Dartmoor.
"The first church here was built in the 13th century, but the present building dates to the late 15th or early 16th century.

At the bottom of the churchyard stands a delightful thatched vestry, the only one in England still in use."

Look carefully at the clock face: The work of the Lord of Buckland Manor, William Whitely. In 1931 Whitely had the clock built as a memorial to his mother, who had died shortly before. Instead of numbers it has the letters that read 'MY DEAR MOTHER'.

When we were at the church I was unaware of this feature, so didn't take any special close up shots.
Maybe I will have to return, although the roads to arrive here were very narrow!

One more shot in the workshop.
Thanks for visiting.
