Stoke Fleming Living Churchyard

Enhancing biodiversity in St Peter's churchyard 

Our Project

The aim of the Living Churchyard project is to enhance and manage the churchyard, 
creating a sustainable haven for wildlife and in turn making a more pleasant place for the people of the community. 

  It is a unique habitat because it has been uncultivated and enclosed for hundreds of years; our plan is to conserve what is already here, and to increase the number and variety of native plants and creatures.


Our Living Churchyard project is part of the UK-wide 'B-Lines' project to build a 'super highway' for insects and birds - creating 'stepping stones' between wildflower rich areas. 

B-Lines aims to create and restore at least 150,000 hectares of flower-rich habitat across the UK.

Friends of St Peter's
