Ancient church and village and trout streams. Another England

The weather could not have been any better yesterday when my wife insisted she show me a village close to here that would be worth seeing and snapping a few pix. Mostly the church due to its age and the age of the village. Although there wasn’t much of the village itself I could photograph at the time.
Lucky we went yesterday cos it’s been raining today and when it wasn’t raining it was windy and cold. It stayed cold and wet all day.

Barton Stacey is the actual name of the village.
The church dates from the 11th century.

BARTON STACEY

The history of the parish covers over 4,000 years - with evidence from Neolithic tribes, through Romans, Saxons, and Normans, and into the modern era.

The parish takes its name from Saxon times, when the village was Bertun ("ber" or barley and “tun” or place - another name for farmyard?), a Royal Manor of Edward the Confessor. In 1206 the Manor was bestowed on Sir Rogo de Stacey and became the Berton of Stacey or just Barton Stacey.

You won’t find thatched roofs on the cottages in Barton Stacey; in 1792 a spark from the village forge set a great fire raging which destroyed many of the houses. But the village centre has a 200 year old pub, The Swan Inn, which sits opposite the church.

A few miles outside the village is one of many places like this.

And signs like this are for very real.  Some places have people on guard.

This final shot is the road beside the church and leads to another village with the name of Newton Stacey.

Good evening to all ... I’m gone.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
