The churchyard of St John the Evangelist Church in Langliffe near Settle in The North Yorkshire Dales National Park is one to visit. It buzzes with bees, butterflies and spirits. The graveyard has become a beautifully tended English country garden .. the dead must love it for to keep a garden like this requires loving hands and thoughts. It is done with sensitivity and care so as to feel natural. For those that love being in, really being in amongst the dead, with them and the living this is a must visit. Daytime in summer is wonderful and the night has its charms of course.
