St Swithun's

Combe, Berkshire

This unusually named church lies in the tiny hamlet of Combe. Combe gives its name to Combe Gibbet, which is near to the highest point in the county - against the village of Combe which could almost be viewed as the lowest point in the county!

You'd be hard-pressed to find Combe if you're unlucky, and then even harder-pressed to find this church. It's quite unusual, for such a small graveyard, to see so many big chest tombs, all of which are ageing and weathering very nicely.

1632 or 1652? Pretty old either way
