Worsbrough Village St. Mary’s cemetery garden. June 17th, 2013.

My secret garden

Parts are wild and wooded

There are some interesting graves

Wild flowers and garden plants seed themselves around
Insect life thrives. The poached egg plant brings hoverflies which eat all the greenfly.

The fisherman fishes

No weeding needed here. All perennial weeds were eliminated before my garden plants were allowed to go wild.

The views were once of pit heaps and the cemetery was  a sea of nettles and brambles

Still an active cemetery, it is a quarter of a mile up the road from the church

“It looks rather wild”. I sometimes have to work out whether this is meant as a compliment or an insult!

I am always uplifted when I make my monthly maintenance visit


  1. It looks lovely just a little piece of heaven on earth.

  2. This cemetry looks so beautiful and pieceful and you do the maintenance, great! In our country and most other countries in Europe, cemeteries are rather scaring, except in England. Especially your old wild graveyards are so,lovely.

    1. Not only the maintenance ,Janneke I introduced the plants and got rid of the brambles and nettles! I was originally sponsored by an old school friend who knew of Bolton Percy churchyard garden.

  3. A very beautiful and tranquil resting place.
