Tea vicar? In the graveyard

Colwich Churchyard, 'Cannock Chase View'

People are strange.  At Colwich Church-yard, they have set up a picnic table and chairs, from which they can see southwards over to Cannock Chase.  As you can observe, they have even installed a post - naming the spot 'Cannock Chase View'.

Would I create a picnic-spot in a graveyard, from where I could sip tea and admire a distant view? 
It wouldn't have been my first inclination.

This sense of the eccentric is something I'd miss if I ever had to leave Staffordshire. Somehow, below the surface, there is a definite eccentricity in this county.  (See all my posts labelled 'Odd Staffordshire')

  1. People are strange. How depressing to look like you say.
