Cornwall Living Churchyards

The Cornwall Living Churchyards Project is a joint initiative between the Diocese of Truro and Cornwall Wildlife Trust. Its aim is to work with the local community (not just the church congregation) to promote the sympathetic management of Cornwall’s churchyards which can provide an important refuge for a diversity of wildlife as well as a pleasant, reflective sanctuary for the local community.

The project aims to strike a balance. A churchyard managed with sympathy and understanding for wildlife can look well cared for and be attractive to people as well as plants and animals; conservation is not about letting things grow unchecked, but about positive management.
