The parish church of St Michael & All Angels, Enmore - Photo by Teresa Davis

The churchyard surrounding the parish church of St Michael & All Angels is nearly full.  In anticipation of its being closed to new burials, Enmore Parish Council bought some land for a future civil cemetery.  The Council put in road access some years ago and started a programme of tree planting.  More recently car parking at the lower end and seating at the higher end have been added, plus a community orchard.  A wild flower meadow is being encouraged in the orchard area.  These improvements were made possible by a combination of Parish Council funds (from the parish element of  residents' Council Tax), grants and donations from local residents.  Thank you to all concerned. 

The land has been used for several village events, including the recent D-Day 80th anniversary celebrations, but is principally intended as a peaceful community green space.
