Presteigne: St Andrew’s

About this churchyard

This beautiful churchyard is under half a hectare in size and is a treat to visit in the summer when the meadow areas are in full bloom. Flowers include harebell, pignut, burnet-saxifrage, knapweed, yarrow, heath bedstraw, meadow vetchling and vetches. In autumn the front part of the graveyard is covered in masses of pink and white cyclamen. Winter reveals carpets of snowdrops followed by daffodils and cyclamen in the spring. There are bat boxes on site and interesting trees such as weeping ash, holy thorn and three notable yews.
