A herd of inquisitive looking sheep were guarding the Giant Redwood in this churchyard in South Reston.
The parish church was demolished in 1982 but the octagonal font remains in the churchyard and is now used as a sundial.
It wasn't clear whether the sheep were residents or if they had just escaped from the adjacent field to feast on the fresh grass.
