Here's a pic of the winged wheel. The headstone is damaged at the moment and we are in the process of getting it repaired, this is an old photo, but one of when it was complete. It has also been cleaned since this photo was taken.

I went to see Freda's grave on Christmas Eve, all is good with the repair. I am hoping to get back there soon to do some more clearing. I couldn't help but notice that a tree next to the grave is marked with spray paint, I can't imagine, with it being such an established tree, that it will be cut down? If the tree is to be cut down I am sure the process will be safe, but I will be glad when I go there and it has been done!

I visited Freda's grave recently and the repair is holding up nicely. I am in the process of cleaning and clearing. I know it's a graveyard, but it is so lovely there. I can't help but wonder who lived in the little terrace houses that are next to the pub.

If only buildings could talk!
