Closed churchyard

The church dates from the 13th century and, although extensively rebuilt in the 19th century, is well worth a visit.

 

Maintenance of grounds

The maintenance regime in place at present is to cut all churchyards fortnightly (weather permitting). All pruning, hedge cutting, etc., is carried out as winter works after the grass cutting season has ended. However if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact the main office.

The council's arboricultural office keeps the trees under  a 3 yearly review and agrees minor works with the volunteers. All major tree works are carried out by the council's tree specialists

 

Graves

Bereavement Services carries out a 5 year rolling programme of memorial testing to ensure that memorials are preserved as well as possible. The council does not have the right to restore memorials, but it does have the responsibility to make the cemetery a reasonably safe place to visit which enables it to lay down any memorials in danger of falling. Safety in cemeteries has improved so much since such programmes were introduced, that now the main benefit from testing is to ensure that  memorials are not left to rot until they fall smashing themselves, or neighbouring memorials, or both, in the process.
