St Chad's, Saddleworth

 

This is St Chad's, Saddleworth- where Bill o'Jacks and Tom o'Bills are buried. As if this wasn't enough there's also a Grey Lady ghost. And as if this wasn't enough there's also a legend that the the fairies didn't like the  original choice of site (on nearby Brown Hill) and moved the stones persistently, night after night, until the builders took the hint and built it here.

By the way, the clock is wrong. These pictures were taken at sundown.

 

 

It's a lonely place. There's no village, just a pub next door and a few farmhouses sprinked about the surrounding landscape.
