If you are interested in finding out more about the memorials and grave markers in a churchyard or cemetery near you, you might be interested in Historic England’s 'Discovering England's Burial Spaces' (DEBS) project: http://debs.ac.uk/index.html.
If you are interested in finding out more about lichens, the plant-like or moss-like organisms that can often be seen growing on old gravestones and stone memorials in churchyards, then have a look at the British Lichen Society’s guides to surveying them: www.britishlichensociety.org.uk/activities/churchyards-and-churchyard-survey.
Continue to follow the path along the side of the Church. It will turn right towards Church Road. When you reach the road, turn left and go back through Shaw House’s gateway and into the grounds. As soon as you go through the gates, turn right towards the information board. Be careful of the concrete path. It is uneven, especially at the base of the redwood trees.
