Saints, Little Ryburgh
The answer lies concealed on the overgrown mound to the north of the gravestones. If you push through the beech and elder trees, all festooned with ivy, you will eventually find the remains of flint rubble walls, all that is left of the former parish church of All Saints, Little Ryburgh. There was no tower. Enough of the south wall remains to show the curve of the doorway, coming together in a pointed arch that suggests the church was from the late 13th or early 14th century. Almost too difficult to photograph, and even on this sunny day I needed to use flash. Not much, but a touchstone still.
