St. Margaret's Church, High Halstow

I was in High Halstow earlier this week visiting friends and had another look around the grounds of St. Margaret's Church, located on Cooling Road. Built on the highest point of the Hoo Peninsula, the Church dates back to the 10th century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086).

The churchyard is in a good state, but I noticed that the grave of Alfred and Minnie Spencer (from the Spencer side of my family) is now very much overgrown. I took the following photographs several years ago - showing the Spencer grave (at the rear of the churchyard), albeit in a damaged condition.
