SP2895 : Cemetery, Bentley

taken 13 years ago, near to Bentley, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Cemetery, Bentley
Cemetery, Bentley
A sparsely populated and rather desolate cemetery ... with no church.
On the 1940s map a church with a tower is shown here, it is also shown on my old green 1:25000 Nuneaton map which was updated in the mid 60s, so presumably it was demolished in the last 40 years. I wonder when.

[April '06] I've got as far as discovering that the church was dedicated to St.John.
According to the GENUKI website, the church was built in 1837, and as the Christening registers continue until 1967, perhaps it was demolished soon after this date. Here's a link to the GENUKI site.
