Wildflowers and Wildlife in the Churchyard

20 Jun 2021, 5:45 p.m.

Our vision for Marton Churchyard is to promote wildflower meadow restoration and pollinator conservation.
Scything is carried out from late July onwards to help protect wildlife such as insects, birds, small mammals and other inhabitants.
This main annual scythe also helps locally sourced seeds and plug plants to become established, so the diversity of native wildflowers is increasing. The main paths are mowed regularly to enable visitors to access the seating areas, pond, bird feeders and wonderful views. We are grateful to all those involved in tending and maintaining our churchyard.
We hope you enjoy your visit to this beautiful and peaceful place.
