Moonfleet.

Walking from our campsite at East Fleet Farm along the Fleet Lagoon you soon reach a tiny church. Today it is all that is left of the Moonfleet church that featured in J. Meade Falkner well known novel, Moonfleet. The church suffered badly when the sea came over the Chesil Bank in a storm on 24 November 1824. The nave of the old church was completely destroyed . All that remains has been turned into a tiny church, with odd  gravestones in the churchyard.
