The Norfolk Churchyard Conservation Scheme was established in 1981 and is run by Norfolk Wildlife Trust in collaboration with the Diocese of Norwich. Nearly half of Norfolk’s parish churches are registered under the scheme, which aims to help churches manage their churchyards to protect the plant species of particular interest while observing the main requirements of the church.
In 2016 Norfolk Wildlife Trust launched another project called Norfolk County Wildlife Action which aims (ed) to work with local communities to survey 50 churchyards over two years. As part of this project we have produced this map which shows some of the churches we have surveyed and the wildlife that can be found.
