St Mary's Churchyard

This is a beautiful, peaceful place in our parish with history to be discovered from the gravestones, wildlife and wildflowers to be sought and enjoyed.

The area is being cared for as a 'Living Churchyard' for nature and for the community, but help is needed.

The Friends of St Mary's Churchyard group plan to:

  • Clear, document and research the gravestones

  • Identify and record flowers, plants and wildlife

  • Help with management of the meadow areas.

If interested, please contact Anne Herbert on 748460.
