The walk to the church took us through the lych gate at the far end of the village green.
Then as you turn the corner you reach the Judas Tree.
Cercis siliquastrum as it's proper name is has heart shaped leaves and flowers growing directly on the branches. It makes a fabulous sight.
There are several reasons why it is known as the Judas tree. One of these being that it was this kind of tree was the variety in which Judas was reputed to have died.
Further along on the walk we passed a series of lakes.
