An unreliable memoir

Meet the Ancestors

St Peter The Poor Fisherman

One branch of my family lies buried in this churchyard. Abandoned many years ago, the church of St Peter The Poor Fisherman clings stubbornly to the coast, continuing to defy the joint efforts of the sea and the Church Preservation Society to undermine it.

Full fathom five thy father lies
Of his bones are coral made
Those are pearls that were his eyes
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.
