The Church of St Peter in the Village of Belton in Rutland

In January 2007 I visited the church of St Peter to look at the Goodliffe graves there.& The church is in good condition and is well cared for. The headstones are also in good condition, although some have weathered badly and are very difficult to read. The low sun angle in January provided a good contrast on some of the stones.
