Approximate time. Having moved to the nearby village of Bourton in 1977, my grandparents were parishoners of this church for many years. My grandfather George Lock's ashes were interred here in the year 2000, and today - 14 years later - I was here for the funeral of my grandmother Joyce ('Trish') Lock. The service conducted by Canon Bede Cooper was excellent and entirely fitting for a remarkable woman who served in the WRNS at Eglinton, Northern Ireland, during WWII. The churchyard - particularly to the east of the church - has a grand outlook over the beautiful green countryside of North Dorset. After the service and then the wake at the nearby village hall I returned to the church to 'log' it as a trigpoint. I used my heli-cam to hover over the site of the bolt which is exactly coincident with the centre of the church tower. After studying the pictures taken by the craft it would appear there is no sign of a bolt in the centre of the tower roof. Further details and photos to follow...
