St. George’s Church was built in 1840 and was closed as a place of worship in 2002. The building is now a business centre but the churchyard remains in the care of the parish. There are a number of Victorian graves and to the south side of the church there is a Garden of Remembrance with plots for ashes.
The churchyard contains a number of fine, mature trees and a mixture of cultivated and wild flowers may be seen around the churchyard, attracting wildlife such as bees and birds. A bench near the Memorial Garden provides a quiet and pleasant place to sit.
In the churchyard this month: primroses and lesser celandines are now in flower.
These are some examples of plants and animals which may be seen in the churchyard throughout the year. Click on a picture for a larger image.
