The Village of Brampton Abbotts is located about two miles north of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire by road and St. Michael's Church can be reached either via Brampton Road, a continuation of Brampton Street, or by taking a pleasant walk across the fields beginning at the Dingle, a turning left from Brampton Road.

The sunrise sequence below was photographed on 28 October 2002 at 06:26, then half an hour later at precisely 06:56 hours GMT. It was a virtually cloud free morning with Mars, Jupiter and Saturn clearly visible, along with the waning moon in the south before dawn. The pretty sky in the photographs is mostly caused by high flying aircraft vapour trails dispersing in icy wind, so I was glad of my vacuum flask containing hot tea! The Ordnance Survey National Grid Reference for St. Michael's is: SO 60096 / 26401 and, if looking from the church doorway, St. Mary's, Ross-on-Wye is precisely 1.49 miles distant. Nearby places include Foy and Hole-in-the-Wall.
