This charming church is notable not only for its beautiful location in an idyllic village not far from York, but also for the fabulous windows, intriguing carving in the lych gate and the most stunning "wild" graveyard across the road.

Bolton Percy is tucked away down small lanes but is a delight to discover and the jewel is surely the All Saints church. The church itself contains a number of lovely features, including the carved lych gate but the most surprising feature is outside and across the road where you can find a wonderful cemetary. The cemetary has been allowed to grow "wild" while at the same time being cultivated to some degree. When we visited in Autum 2012 it was still beautiful; in Summer it must be amazing. Tucked into the corner of the village not far from the SW corner of the churchyard is the Crown Inn, which makes this village just about perfect, by my reckoning.
