Churchyard Tour

Our churchyard is one of the longest in the country. During your tour of the St Peter's churchyard your guide will show you the graves and tell stories of the various and interesting local people.

Our Churchyard Tour is around the attractive and pleasant churchyard of St Peter's. The churchyard is one of the longest in the country and the largest “Closed Churchyard” in England. Your guide will show you the graves and tell stories of various and interesting local people. The earliest grave we have found dates back to 1623.

The churchyard itself is lovely in spring and summer and if you are keen on local history you are sure to find this tour of particular interest.

You will need sensible shoes as you will be walking across grass and uneven ground, and should allow 90 minutes for the tour.

Some restricted access for visitors with disabilities. Children are very welcome on our tour. We would, however, suggest a minimum age of 10 years to appreciate the experience. Free, but donations invited.

Booking is essential on all tours, to book please call +44 (0)1843 868646 (standard rates apply)
