Many of our churchyards have a remarkable collection of trees and shrubs which add to the peaceful landscape.

St Martin’s in Seamer, near Scarborough, is one of them.

Just off the village’s main street, St Martin’s sits atop a small hill with a collection of trees throughout its surroundings.

The churchyard is also adjacent the site of the old manor house, part of which still stands in the field behind the church.

There are also some impressive gravestones, including a stone angel.
