 Great photo, those headstones look like they are new or  re engraved, do you know if that is the case ?

One of the Linham's mentioned in my signature is buried further down the hill and as yet I haven't been able to get a really good photo of his grave.

Hi

yes it’s a very quiet place and for about 30 seconds there was total silence until the birds started to twitter. The stone do look as though they’ve recently been re-engraved.

A few more pictures
