In part II of ‘Stories from a Living Graveyard’ Damian and myself journey back into the earliest history of Preban. This takes us deep into the medieval period. We follow the story of the graveyard through the late Middle Ages and the religious turmoil that followed the Reformation. We also talk to archaeologist Chris Corlett to hear the fascinating story of the stonemasons who carved some of the outstanding gravestones that still stand in the cemetery today.

This episode is the second of seven in ‘Stories from a Living Graveyard’. The series will be released daily as part of Heritage Week 2020.
