Morpeth (St Mary the Virgin) Churchyard - War Graves Week Tours
War Graves Week is an initiative aimed at encouraging people from the local community to come together and discover the World War heritage on their doorstep – learning about the stories of those commemorated by the CWGC and the skills, dedication and expertise of those CWGC staff and volunteers who work to keep their memory alive.
MEETING POINT: At the car park at the side entrance to the churchyard, off St. Mary's Field NE61 2QD (site of former Storey Park Community Centre).
Find out why the War Graves of British, Polish, Dutch and New Zealand nationals are all commemorated in Morpeth Churchyard.
Parking nearby; Uneven ground.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and bring a water bottle with you if needed. We will not be able to provide refreshments.
