I was completely unprepared for all that this cemetery has to offer. I was told about there being a Secret Garden but, looking at the display plan, could not find it marked.

The volunteers are doing a great job, getting this once beautiful churchyard back to its former glory. They have transformed the war memorials and are lovely to see when you wonder round.

It never ceases to amaze that so few people know of the solitude and beauty to be found here...and perhaps that's no bad thing! it isn't a place for youngsters to run around, but one for old-stagers to stroll, sit and enjoy.

An interesting place to visit for historians, wildlife enthusiasts, gardeners or just for a quiet place to stroll. The grounds are maintained by volunteers who are improving the site with information boards and trails for children. Well worth a visit.

Had not been here in nearly fifty years. Not changed much. Walked from the cemetery down to Peasholm park. Masses of grey squirrals everywhere. Pleased to see a lot of repair work being done to grave stones in the cemetery.
