St Wilfrid's Church Grave Yard, Ribchester, Lancashire, UK

This is the cemetery of an ancient church in Ribchester, a small parish in between Preston and Blackburn. The church dates back to around the 13th Century, and is close to local Roman ruins, including a fort and a bath house. The church backs on to the River Ribble. The buildings are owned by the Anglican church, but obviously they pre-date the reformation and would have been originally constructed by Catholics. It's a pleasant place, and the grave yard is very atmospheric.
