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.
