Cherish Your Churchyard Week

June 3 @ 8:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for a special week to celebrate our churchyard and burial ground and to raise awareness of the treasures they contain.

Churchyards are special places:

  • They often contain a rich diversity of plant and animal life.
  • They are important places for archaeology and history.
  • They often have distinctive and veteran trees.
  • The stonework and boundary walls provide a home for a mosaic of mosses, ferns and lichens.
  • They provide a tranquil place for quiet reflection.
  • They are a resource for inspiration and community learning.

Churchyards are often within walking distance of local communities and can provide a focus for community involvement.

Are you interested in celebrating your local churchyard or burial ground?
