Pirate Tombstone - My Sunday Photo 210517

Pirate Tombstone – My Sunday Photo 210517 It’s strange the things you come across in the heart of Northamptonshire!  We visited Canons Ashby a few weeks ago and popped over to the church to have a look round, and there was this rather strange gravestone.  Could it be a pirate… Continue reading »
