Brocklands Woodland Burial

This family owned natural burial site is part of the Cappleside Estate, which is spread across 70 acres of woodlands and farmlands. Woodland burials have been taking place here since 2000, and the grounds have a rich variety of native trees including yew, oak, hazel, lime, wild cherry crab apple and hawthorn.
Wildflowers growing amongst the green burial plots include primroses, daisies, daffodils, bluebells and snowdrops. These have been allowed to grow naturally, and self-seed to create a beautiful meadow.
