John Taylor, died at the remarkable age of 137 years

Leadhills Cemetery. John Taylor retired from the mines in 1751 at the age of 117! A long time was spent in this large cemetery looking for his grave, it was eventually found. For future visitors I've included a couple of images showing the location of John Taylor's grave. It is the flat tablestone located near the boundary wall under the trees!

Elvanfoot Church

This graveyard has only more recent headstones, one old wooden cross caught my attention. The church has a excellent slate roof. I'm not sure, but the church looked unused.
