Because lunacy was the influence for an album. It goes without saying that an album about lunacy will breed a lunatics obsessions with an album - The Dark side of the moon!

Does make you wonder doesn't it. Don't bounce too hard on it!

( real stabin the dark - if it is a shaft, not memorials to an accident in times past? There were a few in that area weren't there? None of your kit down there is there Cardi??))

the actual stones look like they've been there for hundreds of years, moss green, slanted.

If ya get there before me take a photo to put on here.

strange. There's a large church on the other side of the main road, bit far away though to be part of that.

Still a problem posting pictures - you were lucky with these - but hang onto any for later if they fail!

yes,its a slippery slope.

Im not aware of any church/chapel there that would account for a local source for potential gravestones.
Don't get me started!!

There is nothing marked on the 1906 map, but they are in the grounds of what was Sanford House



Lining it up it looks the be the bottom of snake lane as you say in the grounds of sandford House. there are a couple of small structures at the bottom of the lane on the map. Cottages or outhouses who knows. Speedwell Pit was around here too but maybe further down.

Anyway it's a race to see who gets to see them first!!!

I wish I had seen this thread earlier as I passed this afternoon. Looking forward to finding out more.
