This spire was an easy find, most welcome after poking around in the mud and thorns at nearby ELEPHANT. Even on a Sunday, this was a peaceful location. We must have been too late to encounter any churchgoers. The scene was bright and colorful with the flowers of early spring—daffodils and grape hyacinth—circling the perimeter of the stone church and accentuating the stained glass windows. The church dates to 1743 and has an interesting history.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.
