Many of you will recognise the number as being from the book of the same name by George Orwell, his real name was Eric Arthur Blair
Now like many of you I read the book when I was young as part of my literature for the exam's I would be taking but I never realised he was only buried a few miles away from my home. It was not until my later life I found this out and decided to visit when I had the chance which came about when I decided to take some photos from round Sutton Courtenay which is where his last resting place is.
Walking on into the churchyard at he back you cannot but help noticing this tomb of Herbert Henry Asquith who was the prime minister of England from 1908 - 1916 he preferred to be buried here rather than Westminster Abbey
The churchyard is well worth looking round at the old graves which is parts are over grown.
