The Beautiful Burial Ground

We are delighted to receive support from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Beautiful Burial Ground Project

This project aims to put burial grounds literally on the heritage map by creating a bespoke database and interactive map where individual burial sites can be mapped, linking records on the plants and animals to a particular site, easily accessed by all.

The new project will also encourage citizen science, social and historical recording and research to give a holistic picture of the whole range of heritage present in our burial sites. People new to this type of recording will be supported via special events, workshops and activities.

The Heritage Lottery fund has awarded us £17,700 of development funding to help us progress plans to apply for a full grant of £586,700, which will, hopefully enable the new four-year project to start up at the start of 2018.
