Littleton: Church of St Mary Magdalene
The Church is a Grade I Listed Building. There is a lot of detail about the Church on the English Heritage website but briefly the first part describes it thus:-

"C12 origins, with chancel and south aisle C13, north aisle C14, clerestory C16 and tower raised in C18. North chancel chapels (now vestries) of 1705 and c1730, all restored in C19 and C20. Ragstone, chalk and conglomerate on nave with brown brick to lower stages of tower, russet brick to top, orange/red brick to clerestory and chequerboard brick work with vitrified headers on north chancel chapel. Plain tiled roofs. Tower to west, nave with clerestory and pentice aisles, porch to south, chancel to east and vestries to north. Four stage tower with plat bands across each stage and on plinth below; battlemented parapet above. Quatrefoil windows to upper stage of each face in rebuilt section. One 3-light diamond brick mullion lancet window on west side of second stage, two-light windows on north and south. Four-centre, arched-head and chamfered surround to lancet windows on north and south sides of first stage, three-light window to west."

The photographer assumes that the tomb to the right, which dominates the graveyard and appears now to be sadly severely damaged, must belong to the family that owned Littleton House and its estate.

This may seem like an idyllic country churchyard but immediately behind the photographer is the graveyard wall and beyond that Shepperton Studios...
