King Charles the Martyr Parish Church Graveyard

Behind Falmouth's parish church (in the centre of town) is a grassy open space climbing the hill to Wodehouse Terrace. The interesting history of this patch of ground is lost to many of Falmouth's residents, who often assume the site has always been used for dog-walking or view-taking. But a closer look reveals a scattering of gravestones, leant against walls or covered with ivy. These relics are a clue to the site's actual history; the entire hillside here is a disused graveyard, opened in 1664 and closed in the 1850s because the ground was literally overfilled with the dead.

The Mayor met with Tony Robinson from the Rotary Club of Falmouth who, with the support of Falmouth Town Council, are setting up an annual Young Citizens Award.

The award will be presented by the Mayor of Falmouth in late July and the names of the recipients kept in a Book of Honour.
