The rejuvenation has its origins in the autumn of 2007. The church’s new next-door neighbours, Graham and May Prior at ‘Church Cottage’, faced enormous task of making the graves, totally submerged in undergrowth, more accessible.
This prompted a major churchyard clearance, removing the ash saplings and blackthorn thicket that had hidden many of the graves.
This has created the beautiful country churchyard, with its delightful views across the Tas valley and drifts of snowdrops and daffodils in the spring. An area is set aside for conservation under the guidance of Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Today the churchyard is an oasis of beauty and tranquility throughout the year.
