Return to Churchtown, Lancashire

Probably my favorite churchyard, situated around the north and south sides of St. Helen)s church, containing several sandstone headstones that have received a Grade II designation from English Heritage. They date mostly from the 18th century.
There is a sundial that dates from 1757 & within the church there is the chamfered shaft of a sandstone cross, probably dating from the Middle Ages.
The church itself is Grade l listed.
