...for Babies and Children
One of our earliest glades and seventh to open, Wren is nestled within the original Woodland Burial Ground boundary. Together with Robin Glade, it enjoys a prominent position just off the woodland road near the entrance.
Wren is special, The Trustees created it for the youngest in our society and we offer burials here without charge to those who are unfortunate to have to deal with the loss of a child.
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 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. Deer and squirrels are just a few of the regular inhabitants.
