Oh how I miss that Green and Pleasant Land. Well: the Green and Pleasant bits, anyway.
May they be blessed by God.***I often walk to this church (Helsingin pitäjän kirkko) and it's park like graveyard:http://www.vastavalo.fi/albums/userpics/11625/normal_20100812-_MG_1183JV.jpghttp://www.vantaanseurakunnat.fi/tikkurila/haayo-2010/images/lauri_sisa.jpg/pa_thumb/imagex650x866.jpeghttp://www.cartinafinland.fi/fi/imagebank/large-image/89/89772/Pyh%E4n+Laurin+Kirkko+89772.jpgIn the new chapel:http://evl.fi/EVLUutiset.nsf/Documents/2ECB0BD5ED1510D1C225777B003FD90A/$file/Pyh%C3%A4,%20siunauskappeli.jpgIn this nice old summer cafe near the church I drink coffee:http://img.mtv3.fi/mn_kuvat/mtv3/matkailu/kotimaa/uusimaa/535113.jpgA park near the church:http://www.vantaanlauri.fi/arkisto/2011/2011-05-26/teemat/meidan-nakoiset-haat/images/valaa-20-1-12-_page_06_image_0002.jpg/pa_thumb/imagex650x428.jpeg
Is Tolkien buried with his wife? What about Joy Gresham?In 1994, I made my pilgrmage to Oxford and saw the Eagle and Child, etc.Best, I visited the Kilns. Only one caretaker was there, and I helped him for an afternoon in the garden, which was in a state of disrepair at the time.How many can say they gardened at the Kilns? Ah, fine memories...
@Chris - yes, Tolkien is buried with his wife (Beren and Luthien, it says on the grave stone) - But Jack Lewis with his brother, and I don't know where Joy is buried.I visited the Kilns too, which was memorable - also very neat nowadays, thanks to people like yourself!
