When you go to look at the graves, please take care and remember that the ground at churchyards can be uneven.

You can read about some of these graves, and others, in The Churchyard Trail, a leaflet published by the Friends of St Julitta’s Church. It’s available for a small donation from inside the church, where there’s also a booklet (£7.50) with full details of the memorial inscriptions. If the church is locked, ask at the Pinnacle Café for the key.
