St Thomas' church, Garstang.

Spent some time in Garstang, a market town with a long distinguished history. Set halfway between Preston and Lancaster. The A6 goes past the town but not through it. The M6 goes past it but not through it. Garstang is sandwiched between the two!

It is really likeable and plenty to see historically.
I was drawn to the war memorial which I photographed. Then visited St Thomas' church. Then explored the graveyard. Its on a tilt and is probably the slippiest place I have ever been in!

The graveyard to the rear of the church. The leaves on the ground on the slabs made it slippy.
Not sure it was as tilted as this! A panoramic shot stitched together.

These were the two servicemen’s graves I found.

Private E. Crompton

Private A.E Richardson
Both men were comparatively old when they died. Both left wives and family in the local area too. The links relate to a reference within the CWGC Database.
