W.H. Lofthouse
I had a wander around Durham to day and came across this derelict chapel and graveyard.
I thought the chapel looked interesting and took a few shots.
Normally I would clone out any distractions, like the bright headstone, but on this occasion no way.
The inscription reads........
Buried elsewhere in this burial ground,
29/1668 Corporal
W.H. Lofthouse
Northumberland Fusiliers
5th July 1916, aged 24
Rest In Peace.

I think you will understand why.

I did try and chop down the tree but my Chainsaw wouldn't start, oily plug I think

Interesting image and a fitting memorial to a young man killed in the great war.

An interesting image indeed, it looks like nature is trying to take over again, I suppose you didn't consider cloning out the tree then George ?
Very sad only twenty four years old, but he was not the first and neither will he be the last unfortunately, just a waste of a life.

A clone job toooo far methinks Jeffrey

Go for it George... You would be a clone master... could be easier then getting the chainsaw to go

Good work on the editing George, you have excellent detail in the stonework of the old chapel and there is good lighting and detail in the grass path leading up to it.
And you were so right not to clone out the headstone,

The headstone is important; the symbolism especially so. I better many mothers wished they good some how have blotted out the effect of the Great War on they "boy" soldiers. I've just had a sudden vision of a Watch with Mother programme from the 1950s where a house with a face would peep round from behind something (trust me - I've not been drinking (much)); the church seems to be doing the same. Glad you found it for us.
