Wood Norton – All Saints

About this churchyard

Areas of All Saint’s churchyard have species indicative of unimproved, species rich grassland such as pignut, ox-eye daisy and and meadow saxifrage alongside the more common, but still valuable, churchyard finds of germander speedwell, sorrel, common cat’s ear and common knapweed.  On the roadside of the west churchyard wall, the rarely seen in Norfolk, black spleenwort can be found.

Due to the abundance and diversity of flowering plants in the churchyard, the grassland is humming with invertebrate life in spring and summer, including numerous butterflies and bumblebee species, such as the early bumblebee, red-tailed bumblebee, tree bumblebee and common carder bee.
