Robin Woodland Glade

One of our earliest glades (the fourth to come online) Robin is situated within the original Woodland Burial Ground boundary. It enjoys a prominent position near the main entrance.

Robin is a medium sized glade predominantly planted with poplar trees which will slowly be replaced with native woodland species. It is also the entrance to Linnet Glade and directly opposite Wren Glade, the latter being dedicated to infants and children.

Glade Information

The site was consecrated on 7th June 2007. The glade was subsequently cleared and seeded in the Spring of 2009 and officially opened later that Summer.
The glade is closed with all plots in use or reserved.

The site nestles within 60 acres of managed woodland and mainly comprises Poplar trees. The trees have now achieved an impressive level of maturity. The silvery green foliage and rustling leaves give the glade a unique character.

Over the passage of time other native trees will be introduced such as Oak, Ash etc and the glade will take on a traditional woodland feel. In the meantime it offers a sanctuary for many different woodland plants and animals which are actively encouraged through good husbandry of the land - Robin Glade is also home to one of our Owl boxes.
