The Church Gatehouse at Long Compton

The village of Long Compton is about halfway between Oxford and Stratford Upon Avon on what used to be the old A34 road. Here the road winds through some lovely countryside. A couple of miles to the south are the Rollright Stones, a rather gnarled stone circle, part of a group of prehistoric monuments. From here the road drops down into the village and then on through the rolling Warwickshire countryside.

The village itself is perhaps most famous for its church and its one storey gatehouse – properly known as the Lychgate, usually a quick stop for tourists passing through on the way to the charms of Stratford and beyond.

Here is my take on a view of the Church Lychgate and the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul.
