St Mary (Old church ruins), Compton Abbas, Dorset - 25th September 2003

Everything except the tower of this church was emolished by the Victorians who built a new church in the village.  The setting of this 13th century remnant in it's ancient churchyard is quite lovely, far off the main road and adjacent to a farmyard.  The overgrown yew and box only add to the atmosphere.
