1568 : Nigh To This Place


Gravestone : St Andrew's Church, Aldborough, Yorkshire (March 2017)

There is something gloriously imprecise about the wording of this gravestone. No "buried here below" or "beneath this stone"; but a poetic "nigh to this place". It could be in the shade of the tall grass, it might be amongst the springtime stems. We don't need to know - just remember.
