Beautiful Burial Grounds Week

(formerly known as Cherishing Churchyards week)

Saturday 8th June – Sun 16th June 2019

Join us for a special week to celebrate churchyards, chapel yards and burial grounds of all types. They have so much to offer.

  • 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
