An Open Day is taking place at the new natural burial ground in Farndon, Cheshire.
Visitors are welcome to attend the Open Day at Monument Meadow Natural Burial Ground on Chester Road, Farndon. Starting Friday 27th May, from 10.30am to noon.
Monument Meadow Natural Burial Ground recently won a ‘Good’ award in this year’s Chester Civic Trust ‘Good, Bad and Ugly Awards’.
Judges praised the Natural Burial Ground for displaying “a nice mix of cultural and natural heritage“.
“It has a well-designed car park, an attractive oak barn for ceremonies and shelter, and also tree and hedge planting. The inspired wildflower planting is a delight and the fantastic setting enhances Barnston Monument. It also helps to address habitat loss and pollinator decline.”
The natural burial ground opened on land owned by the Barnston Estate, one of Cheshire’s oldest family estates, in Autumn 2021 to replace the burial ground at St Chad’s in the village.
Natural burial enables people to choose a funeral that is unique, in tune with nature and gentle on the environment. Various sustainable funeral options are available, also including natural burial and scattering of ashes.
The natural burial ground is available to residents of Farndon and also of the surrounding villages.
