Edensor Church

Inside this beautiful village

 you're right Dui, it does have the feel of 
'Midsummer Murders'
about it, doesn't it! 

There is a very special church

Can you read this ?

Kathleen Kennedy is buried here.
She had married the heir to the Chatters-A-Way Estate, 
before he was killed in WW1 and she died in a plane crash
So sad.

(Just as you remembered Sweet William, I'm impressed)

And her brother John F  Kennedy visited here in June 1963

This is where the last of the Mitford sisters, 
the Dowager Duchess is buried
Those Mitford girls where AMAZING!

The stained glass window inside was stunning,
sadly Mum's photographic abilities do not show 
just how beautiful it is

And look at the Church organ….all that beautiful wood!

Oh, and where was I in all this???

Chatting to my mate …the Church Mouse
I had to listen very closely 'cos
he was
 "As quiet as a Church Mouse"

(and probably not very rich either!)


Loves and licky kisses
Princess Leah 


  1. it was so great to read more about this wonderful place... and I even had a real princess as a tour guide wow! and now I know that the churchmouse really exists :o)

  2. Hari OM
    What a beautiful place. To have spent time with the church mouse is a blessing indeed, your Tourliness!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. That church is in a wonderful setting and the organ must sound amazing. We'd love to have seen the church mouse but we couldn't find him anywhere!

  4. what a wonderful and historical place to visit

  5. Leah darlin' what a lovely lovely church. It just amazes us the amount of delicate carvings on the stone and how in the world they were able to build such things way back then w limited tools. I guess as the saying goes sometimes you just make do!!

    It must have been a very somber experience to see the gave of Kathleen Kennedy and know the history. The Kennedy family has had their share of tragedy.

    Did you kiss your little mouse friend on the nose before you left
    Hugs madi yoru bfff

  6. What a pretty place! You have such grand adventures.

  7. Thank you for telling us all about this beautiful church. Nice to learn some history while enjoying seeing the beautiful Princess Leah.

  8. beautiful place thanks for sharing

  9. WE did not know that about the Kennedys, how very interesting. That was nice that you talked to that little mouse, he probably does not get much company. What a beautiful church. stella rose

  10. Wow! Thank you for that lovely tour and the history too. We really loved seeing all that!

  11. We thought mom was the only one that visited old cemeteries
    Lily & Edward

  12. SHE loves old cemeteries! And buildings...and history. We think we'd like the mouse best. Thanks for the tour.

  13. What a lovely historical place to visit
    Mr Bailey, hazel & mabel

  14. We know pictures never do the old churches justice. thanks for sharing it. FYI Lady loves old cemeteries too!

  15. So church mice really ARE quiet? Interesting. What if you grabbed him and shook him? Just curious.
    Oooh, Midsommer Murders. I love that show!
    What beautiful photos!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher
    PS: As per your comment on the Ao4 Digest -- rest assured, in MY 10 Downing, there IS no kit-cat problem! ;)

  16. What a fabulous place to visit and so very special!

  17. Mitford sisters were they not six eccentric sisters? Were some of the sisters not fascist and I thought one committed suicide. Oh I am going to have to take a look at my history.
    You know Rose Kennedy was so miffed at her daughter for marrying into a none Roman Catholic family that she did not attend her daughters funeral. Such simple stone in the cemetery. Wonder who still leaves the flowers. Oh how I wish I could be there in the furs.
    Thanks for being a friend
    Sweet William The Scot
