St Mary


There is no graveyard attached to the church. Burials took place in the Newstead Old Cemetery, on the Hucknall Road and now take place in the New Cemetery.

There is a pleasant path, of recent construction, which circumnavigates the church and plans are in hand to develop the space into a memorial garden.

A pair of gates which are now fitted at the rear entrance to the churchyard were donated by Newstead Parish Council in 2000. These were previously the gates to the Old Chapel (now demolished), which stood where the community garden is now at the top end of Chapel Street in the Old Village.
