This morning I met Cllr Eric Bell at St Johnís Church,
Whittle-le-Woods to see some notable graves. In the south-west
corner of the graveyard are a small group of graves marked by
simple stone crosses. They are the graves of those who worked
most of their lives in service at nearby Shaw Hill. Bushes have
tried to engulf them but young offenders serving community
service are occasionally being used to keep the area clear.
