Martin Nicholson's Cemetery Project

St Guthlac, Little Cowarne, Herefordshire

Return to the front page

Saint Guthlac of Crowland (Old English: Guðlac) (673–714) was a Christian saint from Lincolnshire in England. He is particularly venerated in the Fens of eastern England. Why a village church so far from the Fens should be dedicated to this saint is unknown.

There must be a "back story" here. William Fletcher was killed rather than died and his grave specifically mentions "Vengeance is mine ...".
