Astbury

On our way back from Mow Cop we stopped at Astbury. The bellringers were at it like a poltergeist among the fire irons. 

The church is really odd- with a tall spire that seems to have come adrift from the main building. There's a collection of  wonderfully grotesque medieval gargoyles, a 1000 year old yew tree and- very unusual- a  set of high-status medieval tombs that have been erected outside, in the churchyard and are now more or less reduced to featureless lumps.
