The churchyard of St John’s is a beautiful community space. It provides a rare sanctuary for MG5 grassland and many wildflowers. Over the last 25 years, the churchwardens and local volunteers have worked hard to establish a conservation area for the community.

The churchyard is still open for burials but it performs many functions besides. With the introduction of Heritage Lottery Funding, the church has been able to expand it’s environmental remit, replacing strimmers with scythes and gaining the eco-church award. You can find the latest news below.
