Medieval Gravestone Vandalised In Scarborough’s St Mary’s Churchyard, Home To Anne Bronte’s Grave

Posted by admin on Jul 18, 2009

Vandals have split apart a medieval gravestone in Scarborough’s most historic churchyard.

The attack has been branded “sacrilegious” by a local history supporter, who says it is part of a worrying trend of anti-social behaviour in Scarbor-ough’s much-loved Old Town.

The damaged gravestone in St Mary’s churchyard, home to Anne Bronte’s grave, an attraction that brings many lovers of literature to town from throughout the country, was smashed.

The vandalism has been reported to the police. It is the second attack in a month on a memorial at St Mary’s, where no burials have taken place for over a century.
