After the church visit the graveyard to see where Lawrence is buried it is worth a visit. It is just down the road from the church and the tea rooms.

Lovely peaceful and well maintained graveyard. T S Elliots grave is a must see. See the church and the walled garden while you are here.

Of course it's just another graveyard, but this one has the well tended grave of T E Lawrence, (of Arabia fame).

A small country cemetery. A mixture of well tended plots, and others where nature has been given full sway. The grave of T.E.Lawrence is (fittingly) well maintained, and the headstone carries a thought provoking message of hope.

Of T E Lawrence, this small cemetery might be his resting place with his grave at the end of the short grave path but it is also linked to St Nicholas Church just up the road where his funeral took place, the church being well...More

The resting place of the troubled and brilliant T.E. Laurence. A traditional English cemetery, a little way away from Saint Nicholas's Church, enhanced by his grave (which you'll find at the top end of the graveyard).
