6 south of Glastonbury

ST7139 : Lych gate, Church of St Mary Magdalene by Maigheach-gheal
Many churches have a lych gate built over the main entrance to the enclosed area round the church. The name, also spelt lich or lytch, is from the Anglo Saxon 'lich' meaning corpse. The gate marks the division between consecrated and unconsecrated ground, where the bearers sheltered with the coffin, waiting for the clergyman to lead the procession before the burial. The original lych gates had seats, a lych cross and a lych stone - a slab on which the coffin rested.

TQ0107 : Arundel Castle (detail), West Sussex by Roger  Kidd
Arundel Castle is a restored mediaeval castle. It was founded by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas Day 1067. Roger became the first to hold the earldom of Arundel by the graces of William the Conqueror. The castle was damaged in the English Civil War and then restored in the 18th and 19th centuries.
From the 11th century onward, the castle has served as a hereditary stately home and has been in the family of the Duke of Norfolk for over 800 years. It is still the principal seat of the Norfolk family. (Notes from Wikipedia).

SU5800 : The River Alver (2) by Barry Shimmon

The River Alver is very short, rising in a series of springs and surface water drainage ditches in the Chark Common and Foxbury area west of Gosport and northwest of Stokes Bay. It flows southwards, gathering water until it reaches a concrete canal running alongside the western edge of No.2 Battery at Stokes Bay. Royal Engineers have made use of it over the years, to maintain a defensive moat.
