lovely photo I could do with an angel to take care of my leaves and the ones that always end up at my gate from across the road.

I forgot to put that I was reminded of the Angel of Mons . I thought it may be suitable for Remembrance Day.

An interesting composition, Poet. Very atmospheric. Different from most P-A-D pics. Well done...!!

Its in a very shady spot, and can be slippy under foot, and if you riding a bike its best to put you feet down
You can see quite a few graves in St Wilfs saying that the deceased was of the village of Shevington , because before St Annes at Shevington was built in 1887 we had to cart our dead to Standish.
I can just imagine in the olden days two Standishers in the pub saying why are they digging so many graves in Standish
I can just imagine the now a days days two Standishers in the pub saying why are they building so many houses in Standish
BTW the post box outside of the Standish Coop been decorated with a knitted Poppy day themed hat, Poppy day been going for 100 years this year.

That is a lovely and unusual photo, Poet. It could also be a book-cover for a mystery story. I like that very much.

"A row of shining beings" that became a "Company of Angels''. I hope it was true and not a hoax.

I was always told to get off my bike and wheel it through the churchyard. It's a pity children aren't told to respect churchyards these days Mick.

As Fred commented, a
very atmospheric scene & appropriate for Rememberance Sunday. Thanks Poet.

Eddie I went to school with a lass called Lowe who lived next to Almonds brewery but I can’t remember her name.

Eddie the old grey matter is working, I think there were two sisters could your wife be one of them? We went to Shevvy in the late 50’s.

Angels are like friends, they're always there when you need them.

You used to be able to see this statue from the car park before the Parish Hall went up. It was a shiny white colour back then. I'm with you Jean, cycling in the Churchyard, pre cursor to a thick ear methinks. Whenever I'm in the churchyard with the mountain bike, I push it to the nearest exit before getting back on.

Where was my angel, when I wore gloves ,
Gave my life for land I love .
Fought in lands I did not choose ,
Left my body when barely used .
Where was she as I lay in mud ,
as thunder deafening my skies above,
Always fearful the next bolt gun,
Is this one mine , with my name on .
Should I call her, as I lie here ,
my scattered body with no one near ,
She approaches , but I am gone ,
once with smile and yes someone ..

Of the 50s and 60s are still with us.
Poeple such as Rene Hart,Ann Wilson,etc.
