East Ham - Church of St Mary Magdalene

Local Nature reserve and graveyard, dating from 12th Century but on an older site. Graveyard has layers of graves and is densely overgrown but maintained both as a nature sanctuary and as graveyard (although it does not accept new guests anymore). Many rumors are about on the graves with the skull and crossed bones, upon a flag / banner of some sort. Pirate, Soldier, Privateer, or Noble, I will talk to the vicar when I get the opportunity (and also get some photographs from inside the church). Very odd place, very old very peaceful, many small animals and birds, pockets of wind, and quiet, which is odd because there are busy roads all around.
