Shangton is now a tiny village, and was depopulated in the seventeenth century, probably at the time of the Enclosure Acts. The church is visible from the quiet road leading to the village.
The churchyard is pretty small, and it’s not easy to get a wide view. This is a photo taken from the vantage point where I did the sketch. After about an hour we were feeling the effects of the chilly breeze, but were able to find a sheltered spot for coffee – and the sun came out as well.
I took the sketch home and finished it with the help of the photograph, and the black and white version below.
