St. Wilfreds, Brayton

Located in large grounds which include a dell consecrated for scattering ashes, and which contains a shallow pond, this large church is also popular with wildlife, with a breeding pair of greater spotted woodpeckers being seen in the grounds.

Despite the ample grounds, the graveyard is rather small, but spread out.

Only two extant war graves are located at this church -
