A few from the village of Slapton in south Devon where I used to volunteer at the Field Centre and still go to imbibe a pint or two of strong cider at The Queens Arms.

Bob Troake on motorcycle

Bob was a former head of the Field Centre and retired in the village. The tower in the background and the old door are part of the Chantry and Ecclesiastical College founded in the 12th century

Church Steps

One of two ways into the churchyard, these steps are at the end of Church Lane

Open door

Once in the churchyard I found the church door open, who could resist a look inside.

Church Interior

It's thought the church is built of Charleton stone, so quarried in my own parish some 6 miles away and I presume carried round by ship and landed on the beach some half a mile away. A church was recorded here in 1292 although this building is larger and is of 14th and 15th century construction, the altar was dedicated in 1318.

Took my roommate's father out for coffee and got some shots across the table. He was having a good time talking and didn't seem to mind. Sorry there are so many. I thought it made a good series.
