I have a very vague memory, growing up in Eastham, of being on a school outing to St Mary's Church, Eastham Village, mainly to do brass rubbings, etc. I was probably about 5 or 6 years old at the time.
I seem to remember us looking in the graveyard and being told that one of the graves was that of a pirate/smuggler - I seem to recall a 'Skull and Crossbones' being on the grave.
Does anybody else have any recollection of this? Or am I dreaming/imagining things again?
