Colston Bassett St John the Divine


The southern part
of the churchyard

The churchyard is within the white stone wall surrounding two sides of the site, the remaining sides are fenced and overgrown adjoining the surrounding countryside.

Only members of the Le Marchant and Knowles families are buried in the churchyard. Just one other singular grave, situated near to the porch, is to a family nanny - Agnes Elizabeth Jessop.

The churchyard at St Mary's church is still open and continues to be the place of burial for parishioners.
