It was over the road from here, in the Chruch Hall, that John Lennon met Paul McCartney, and it's in the graveyard here that is buried the famous Eleanor Rigby.

Went here to see Eleanore Rigby's grave as I'm sure everyone else does. It's a beautiful grave and nice to see people respect it by not damaging it. Great little stop for any Beatles fan.
