  1. That is great detective work. They probably would have never imagined their grave would be immortalized in a famous rock film years later
  2. Quite close to where I was standing in that photo but lower down so the cross looks alot larger! The light must have been just infront of those trees in the background. John Paul Jones is moving toward the church along the path . It is a very clever use of camera position to turn what is a very ordinary church yard into something visually stunning.
  3. Well, you were 100% right about which grave it was. There is no doubt given the location of the other Graves in the shot that this was where that scene was shot. One of the great thing about locations like this Church is they are timeless and have not changed a bit in the 40+ years since these scenes were filmed.
  4. Finally the iconic scene where John Paul Jones Passes the Celtic Cross Grave Stone
  5. Finally I visited St Michael and All Angels Church in Withyham Sussex. This is the location of the graveyard scene.
  6. Here are some shots from the inside, including the view from the window that has the light shining out of it in the video
  7. The team looking after the windmill very kindly let me take a look around and this is what it looks like today:
  8. Took a trip today to the locations used in the John Paul Jones Fantasy scene from the Song Remains the Same. First is the Windmill that John Paul Jones rides past in the night scene. This is the Nutley Windmill in the Ashdown Forest. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutley_Windmill). The windmill dates back to the 1500s
  9. Interesting thing is there is no reference to this anywhere online. I doubt even the owners of the windmill are aware of it, probably one of those things that has been lost in time. I will take a trip up the road tomorrow and get some shots of the church and windmill, it is a only 25 minute up the road.
  10. This is pretty close by: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutley_Windmill This is almost certainly the windmill from the film given that it is the only windmill in the area and has an unusual shape and window position which matches that in the Song Remains the Same. Ill visit that as well
  11. It will be very interesting to see I will try to get the pictures of the church that are used in the Song Remains the Same and some of the inside also. No Quarter is probably my favourite Led Zeppelin song and John Paul Jones probably had a big input into it. It is very close to JPJ's house at the time. Was John Paul Jones' family from Sussex? There is also a black windmill in the Film, do you know where that might be?
