Old Bedfont Church

We pass this old Church in the car from time to time. Apparently one was first built in Saxon times on the site but the oldest part of this one is from 1150 (sounds old to me!)

There are lots of story's about what the peacock shaped trees are about. One is that they were pruned that shape in memory of two sisters who used to go to the church long, long ago.



and you can also see the English flag flying.
