Residents in Longridge are becoming concerned with overgrown graveyards.
Local blogger Laurence Manton has posted about how he feels the headstones at St Wilfrid’s Church are being treated as stepping stones.
He writes: “While this sort of thing is increasingly done across Britain, I have a concern. In the case of Longridge, many of the headstones, which bear the names of individuals and family members who have died and are being commemorated, are being overgrown and could end up lost to view.
“I find this disrespectful and hope something is done to uncover the headstones. I photographed several examples which include some fine examples of cemetery symbolism.”
