Byfleet Heritage Society St. Mary's Churchyard project.
St. Mary's Church from the air.
With the Rector's permission Andy Lambert has made a high quality drone video camera survey of the church and churchyard. This was done shortly before the leaves came out on the trees and also features a re-creation of the 1932 aerial photo from the BHS archives and the only known photo of the Vickers Warwick which forced-landed in the adjacent Three Acre Field in 1945.
