Ste Marguerite de la Foret, Le Bourg de Haut, Forest, , Forest, Guernsey, Channel Islands 12 May 2015
An 18th Century stone for Jean Alles. A heart represents love, mortality, courage, intelligence, or love of God; in the 16th and 17th Centuries, thigh bones and a skull were considered necessary for entry into Heaven at the Last Trump.

Ste Marguerite de la Foret is the smallest parish church on Guernsey. The oldest part of the building dates from the 13th Century and incorporates stones robbed from a dolmen. It was extensively refurbished in 1891. There are two entrances, north and south which were used when the congregation was segregated into men and women, although only the north entrance is now used.
