RE your paper 18 July 2014 – I was pleased to read the old Andover churchyard had not been used since the early 1800s.

I walked through there daily from 1954 to 1958 on my way to East Street School and always noted the poor state of it and wondered about its age. If you walk along Newbury Street you will see arches in the churchyard wall which I am told provided pedestrian access to an old priory.
