Hollow Tower: The Ruins of St Marys, Kirby Bedon

The remains of the round-towered St Marys, in the quiet parish of Kirby Bedon. Supposedly falling into disuse around 1700, there is another medieval church in the village, still in use today - St Andrews, just across the street.

You can stand inside the tower of this one, which makes a nice change from the usual locked gateway. The birds nesting at the top don't seem too happy when visitors with cameras come calling. Bombarded with squalks and bird droppings, I nevertheless escaped unscathed.
