Cemeteries

  • It should be noted that Cloughton Church graveyard is some considerable distance from the Church. It is located Scarborough side of the Church itself same side of the road almost opposite the old converted chapel set back from the main road about 100yards. It's up up a muddy track with a public footpath sign at the end. Further down the road is a lane that leads to the vicarage but not easy to find. [Malcolm Pickering, October 2010.]
