People may know that Count Dracula was a real person who lived in Transylvania and he is reported to have impaled his enemies heads in rows(1000 heads on both the sides of the road)
The Church and the Graveyard associated with Dracula by Bram Stoker was hit by land slide and bones came tumbling down the slope!
A historic church and graveyard which features in Bram Stoker’s Gothic novel Dracula is faced with a horror story of its own.
The human remains are then being collected at the bottom of the cliff face and re-buried.
St Mary’s Reverend Canon David Smith said: ‘The cemetery has been a closed for more than a century so if any graves are exposed it’s only bones.
‘If anything is exposed we collect and reinter them in the same churchyard away from the edge.’
There are fears the cliff the church stands on will eventually collapse in years to come.
The cemetery closed in 1865 but people still use the church.
Rev. Smith said: ‘St Mary’s is the oldest building left in Whitby. It is a grade one listed building and still the parish church so it would be a loss to the community.’
