Westbury corner
Looking into a corner of the churchyard here in the Severnside village, as its name tells, of Westbury on Severn. The village stands astride the A48 Gloucester Chepstow Road and is the home of the National Trust property of Westbury Court Garden. The church of Sts (Saints) Peter, Paul and Mary dates from about 1300 and there have been additions and renovations in succeeding centuries. It has the unusual feature of a detached tower, standing about 50 feet from the main body of the church. The tower was taken by a body of Royalists during the Civil War but they were ejected by a Colonel Massey and his troops. The people in these houses have a constant reminder of their possiblefuture resting places. Time taken not available.
