Church in Bampton, filming for Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey fans may recognise this church as the one used in the final episode of Downton Abbey where they had the funeral of Matthew's fiance Lavina.  It is quite a small church, and the churchyard has two very large grooves in it.  One is a "channel" that leads up to the front door, the other channel seems to go to where a door used to be.  The ground is highly mounded up on either side, which is quite unusual and makes some of the gravestones tilt at an angle.

Looks like you had a fantastic time. Have you heard there's a Christmas special?! And do you think Matthew & Lady Mary will get together?

This photo is sublime! Your hat frames your face with the beauty of the church in the background.
