Teampall Do-Ath

Teampall Do-Ath

Back down Carbury Hill lies a wonderful walled graveyard surrounded by pasturelands. Within the confines of these walls lie the ruins of a church known as Teampall Do-Ath. I cannot find a date for this but it would appear to be  late medieval represented by a W gable with a small bell cote. Adjacent lies the Mausoleum of the Colley family which dates from the 18th century.

The site is located near to a castle and there are two other burial grounds all of which are said to be located on Carbury Hill. The graveyard contains many cut-stone grave markers from the 18th-20th centuries, which are of artistic and historic interest.. The church in the grounds of the graveyard was built by Henry Conley in 1705. The church is well preserved. The headstones date from the 18th-20th centuries. The headstone types are: rounded, obelisk and monument.

The stone used is mostly limestone with occasional white marble. The 18th century mausoleum is well preserved with all sides intact. The structure has stone finials on each corner. There are two gates at the SE side with foot stiles over the wall. The grounds inside the walls have been kept in pristine condition, even the grass seems to be cut regulary. This really is worth visiting for a look around, and with Carbury Castle situated within a short distance you cant really go wrong.

    I love to visit historical sites. Awesome shots here. Love the use of black & white. Creates a whole different feel than color would.

    some fantastic shots, can you give me any tips!!, if you look at one of my previous posts i visited carisbrooke castle and osbourne house can you let me know what you think. Am going on a cruise in June and looking forward to getting some shots as good as yours thanks mate

    • Hi David thanks for stopping by. I had a look at those images, you obviously have a great sense of humor. there are some great shots there which I take are all posted as taken. The first couple have some lense glare which is what can happen when shooting into direct sunlight. If you use an slr you can add a uv filter to your lense along with a lense hood which should greatly reduce this. Sorry im not sure what camera you are using. For a compact sometimes if you set your internal flash to fire it will counter the sun rays in the shot.

      Back in the old days images were edited in the darkroom using chemicals and certain tricks to manipulate a negative. Now we do this digitally. Have you got any photo editing software?

      I personally use photoshop but there are many cheaper options available for basic editing. Little adjustments such as levels, curves, saturation etc can make a huge difference,

      If i can help anymore let us know, 🙂

    Carbury Hill sounds like a rich area for historic sites. I love these latest photos – they have a certain air of mystery which I really like. Another fascinating place!

  11. I love the drama the clouds and the angle give us in the 6th photo….but they are all great moody shots.
