St Mary Churchyard Garden

Cambs Open Space infographic

The churchyard garden is loved equally by worshippers, local residents and visitors from afar. The garden is a listed City Wildlife Site and a sanctuary for butterflies and other insects, birds — and even bats.

The churchyard is divided into two contrasting sections. To the east, facing Trumpington Street, the ground has been levelled and laid to grass, and is kept in trim by the City Council. The much larger wildflower garden lies to the west of the church. For nearly a century it has been developed in a distinctive way and managed co-operatively by volunteers, parishioners and local residents.
