Clitheroe: St. John The Evangelist
About This Churchyard
There are two churchyards – the older one surrounding the church, and the newer one across the road. Both churchyards are managed for the benefit of wildlife, with a limited mowing regime to encourage biodiverse flora and fauna. A bioblitz in 2018 reported over 350 species! There is a wildflower meadow in the new churchyard, which is scythed by volunteers with the Bowland Haytime Project, in late summer. There are magnificent views across the Ribble valley.
