Churchyards in conjunction with the Church building make up an important part of the religious landscape of South-East Wales, and like the buildings themselves need to be preserved in good condition. As well as being havens for wildlife, they contain fascinating stories of community and family history on the gravestones, and provide a place of peaceful contemplation for visitors and local people alike. Information about management and development of these wonderful spaces can be found on this page - or email Jonathan Perons - DAC Secretary.
