(3509) Grade I listed St Mary the Virgin. Small village so parking was at a premium here. Cut BM present on tower buttress - NW angle. Adjacent to the church, and surrounded by a moat, is Astley Castle - much restored after it was gutted in a fire in the late 70s.

I parked outside one of the houses on Post Office Lane and wend for a quick walk with the dog up the lane and into the fields, admiring the castle and the renovation work on it, before coming back to explore the church and its grounds. Needless to say there was nobody around to give me access onto the roof today. Apart from obviously not seeing the rivet I couldn't see the vane or flagstaff either. I did find the cut bench mark however. I then went and had a look at the new sculpture of the miners lamp at the other end of the lane.
