Clipstone All Saints


The south side of
the churchyard

The church occupies a semi-circular plot within the developed mining village. It shares this plot with houses and is situated within a roughly rectangular space in the centre. There are paths and trees within the churchyard.

The churchyard was bounded 5 m to the north of the building, later to follow the line of an existing footpath on the outside by a chain-link fence, and another 14.5 m to the south. The eastern perimeter c.40 m follows the line of adjacent walls with shrubs to the inner. The western perimeter, the front, is 8 m from the building and enjoys a substantial decorative ironwork fence and main entrance gateway. A metalled driveway along the northern elevation enables access onto the car-park to the rear of the building. The churchyard does not include any grave sites but has an area for cremated remains at the south-east, marked by a low cross bearing the words 'GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE'.
