Monkton Combe

Last summer I visited Monkton Combe Church- the most famous burial here is Harry Patch, local resident who served with the DCLI. He gets a lot of visitors for reasons I don't need to go into here, instead a link to a recent article which some people may not have seen:

Less visited is the grave of E.S. Hiscock - it is only a few yards away but I was struck by the incredible difference in how long they lived.
