Dracula Graveyard..
Goths who flocked to the graveyard because of its links to Dracula were banned from the churchyard in 2011


A historic church and graveyard which features in Bram Stoker’s Gothic novel Dracula is faced with a horror story of its own.

Human bones uncovered after a landslide last month have been washed down the cliff St Mary‘s Church stands on in Whitby after heavy rainfall.

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.’
