|St Bridgets at Brean - Allegedly 6th Century, founded by Irish Monks.
|There has been some brickwork altered on this end of the church between the time of the sepia photo and this one. I don't know if this church has a peal of bells
|From the Road - the large grey object is the memorial. The door that you can see is the main door to the church. Entrance to the south. Its a shame the church wasn't open Will have quite an interesting layout inside.

ROYAL GARRISON ARTILLERY
13TH FEBRUARY 1919
Lot Evans, He is also on the memorial. The stone looks absolutely pristine. The turf actually looks like it has been dug recently. A mystery perhaps? Is it usual for a separate grave for those who died at home - found this site This is like an official regiment stone
Not one that I thought Lot's family would put up.
|The north side of the church. Big strong buttresses and what looks like a chimney!
|The North side again - Long shadows from the sun!
|View from the rear of the church - The south side.
The main road is just beyond the church
|The Lych-gate well cared for and with a new set of doors.
The war memorial is just to the left
Anno Domini 1729
According to the guide book the church was struck by lightning in 1729. The tower is now much shortened and had a saddle back roof. Partly demolished. I can't find any information about John Ginchens.Makes you wonder if there is a link between John Ginchens and the lightning

WHO FELL IN THE GREAT WAR
A great little place, worthy of a second visit, more research. There are other monuments in the area which really did need photographing and researching.
