Friends of Gulliford Burial Ground

× Good News! Work to repair the walls and graves as part of the Heritage Lottery project will begin on Monday 18th May. This will continue until August and therefore as a safety precaution the site will be closed to the public for the duration of the repair work. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The Gulliford Burial Ground is a dissenters' burial ground managed by both Lympstone and Woodbury Parish councils as it is situated on the boundary of both parishes and is important to the history of both.

The Friends of Gulliford Burial Ground has been set up by local residents who love the site as a beautiful and tranquil place to visit and also to preserve the history and heritage of the site. It has created an avenue for the Parish councils to get the volunteer helpers it needs to keep the site in good repair though gardening working parties and fundraising events.

Adverse weather conditions and lack of funds has lead to the burial ground's walls needing urgent repair. The graves also need to be repaired and maintained and we hope that we can now move forward to fundraise in order to do these urgent repairs and preserve this historical site for the next generation of parishioners.
