A few photos of the Stanground of “The Stoneground Ghost Tales” (1912) by E. G. Swain

On Saturday in the company of an old college friend, Graham, Susanna and I took a spin over towards Peterborough to the village of Whittlesey to take part in the Straw Bear Festival which you can read all about at this link. After spending a very enjoyable morning there we travelled on a couple of miles further to visit the village of Stanground and the church of St John the Baptist & St Michael & All Angels. The reason for this latter visit was because of our shared enjoyment of E. G. Swain’s “Stanground Ghost Tales” (1912) which were set in and around the church. You can read the stories by clicking this link.

I took a few pictures whilst there and post them here for your pleasure.

All photos taken with a Fuji X100F
