June26th – Farewell church is so secluded, one might not realise it existed at all. There has been a religious presence here since 1140, and this is a very old place, the current St. Bartholomew’s church was built in 1745, and hides down a narrow, leafy track that dives sharply from Stonywell Lane. Here one is truly far from the madding crowd, the shady churchyard being a favourite haunt of cyclists and ramblers alike.
