Mr Monkey in Scotland

"It's an eccentric thing to build"

Mr Monkey looking at the Star Pyramid in Holy Rude churchyard Mr Monkey looking at monuments in Holy Rude churchyard

Mr Monkey scampered around the Holy Rude graveyard. Some people might have sniggered at the thought of a rude graveyard, but Mr Monkey knew it was just a Scottish mis-spelling of Rood*. He admired the many gravestones and monuments, and marvelled that there was a pyramid in a Scottish cemetery. It's a Grade B listed building, and commemorates religious martyrs.

* Which, of course, means cross.
