At the end of the lane is a gated entrance to a farmyard with hay ricks at the far left and a series of buildings set out in a quadrangle, at the centre of which is a walled kitchen garden. The church rises up above the farm buildings in the background. It has a square tower with crenellations and is flanked by mature trees in full leaf. The Summer sky is coloured blue-violet with white clouds at centre left.
