Visited during a fete. Beautiful decorations by locals unfortunately the flowers were dead cos of the heat. Good fun to search the grave yard for plague victims.

What an interesting story this village has to tell! The church was very informative in telling the story of the village during the plague and as a visitor I felt really connected to the people who lived and died throughout this period of history.
