exactly...you wouldnt belive how that area has been knocked about over the years...christ the church was i would say on the spot where that floosie in the jacuzzi is now..just as an aside when john baskeville died at his own request he was buried in the grounds of his garden at easy hill..when the canals came though the land his body was moved to a crypt in christ the church...when the church was demolished poor old john was again moved to the catacombs at warstone lane cemetary...baskerville house is built on the ground where easy hill was...a few of the old wooden steps that were in christ the church were saved and are now at blakesley hall and ive seen them..
Sorry Lyn but do you realise you said "John Baskerville died at his own request"
