CW81: National Love Your Burial Ground Week

Churchyards are beautiful places nestled in the hearts of our communities. They can act as a reminder that time is precious and be a perfect location to reflect on our place in the cycle of life. Their ancient links make them central to a community’s sense of identity.

Burial grounds can be surprisingly rich in biodiversity, supporting a fantastic array of different species. Whilst some plants and animals may move into a well-managed burial ground it is more likely that most have been there for a long time, a reflection of the timelessness of these places and the consistent management that they have received.
