Explore our churchyard

The churchyard was looking particularly fine this morning when I went to open the church, so, in an idle moment this afternoon, (when I probably should have been doing something else) I put together a sheet of ideas for children (or playful adults) to explore the churchyard at Seal. You can download  a copy here , or pick one up from church. There is a laminated copy to borrow on the noticeboard by the entrance to the churchyard, and paper copies in the porch. As half-term has just begun, I thought there might be some families at a loose end in the coming days. Maybe this will fill a gap in your week?

People often forget that they often have their own local historical monument and wildlife reserve right on their doorstep in the shape of their local church, and it's free! 
Seal Church is open every day, so while you are exploring the churchyard, why not also pop into the church. There is also a church trail leaflet for children. It's here, and there are copies in church too. 
If you live too far away to get to Seal Church, why not explore a churchyard near you? 
Autumn colours

Fascinating fungi

Wonderful colours and patterns of lichen

Ancient gravestones. I wonder who was buried under this one? It's too worn to see now.
