'TIS A FEARFUL THING'






'Tis a fearful thing to be no more,
Or if it be, to wander after death;
To walk, as spirits do, in brakes all day;
And when the darkness comes to glide in paths
That lead to graves; and, in the silent vault,
Where lies your own pale shroud,to hover o'er it,
Striving to enter your forbidden corpse.

THE ARCHWAY.


The Archway at St Andrews Church ruin above Church Ope Cove on Portland Dorset.
Gravestones of victims of the Black Death can be seen in the graveyard.
It has been reported that a mysterious cowled figure has been seen passing under the archway.
