St George's Church, Arreton, Isle of Wight.

Beautiful old church, partly Norman but also containing a section of Saxon wall.

Interesting memorial in the churchyard to William Reed of Arreton. The stone appears fairly modern and less worn than the majority of other gravestones and memorials, so I'll have to carry out a bit of research.

The historical connection reminded me of my school history master* , who told us that when he was quite young he had met an old man whose father had fought at Waterloo. It sounded improbable to us schoolboys, but it was actually quite possible if the Waterloo veteran had sired a lad in his later life.

* Some might remember RS when he was senior lecturer in political and social studies, RMAS Sandhurst. Also an author and did a bit of exploring with Blashers. And was a contestant on Mastermind!
