Landslide causes cliff-top graves to fall on town below

St Mary’s church and cemetery are facing the problem of plunging onto the town below after heavy rains caused a landslide in the area. Located in Whitby in North Yorkshire England, the church and cemetery date back to as early as 1110AD, and some residents that live in the town below are finding bones in their backyards. Creepy!

The cemetery inspired Bram Stoker when writing his classic novel Dracula and has been closed to the public since 1865. Visit the Daily Mail to see more pictures and read more about this old church and cemetery.
