Before going to Coldred, I called in at Waldershare, my grandfather’s other parish, where they lived in the Victorian rectory next door to the church. The church is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and has only one service a year. I got there too late to see the great monuments inside, so wandered through the churchyard to see if I could find my grandfather’s grave, admired the burial place of assorted Earls of Guilford, and walked across Waldershare Park to see the eighteenth-century house which was heavily remodelled by Reginald Blomfield after a fire in 1912.

The great yew tree in the churchyard:-

The tombs of the Guilfords:-

The home farm:-

And Waldershare Park:-
