Northumbrian Woodland Burials
Northumbrian Woodland Burials is located at Bockenfield Wood, near the village of Felton, in rural Northumberland. Part of a former World War 2 RAF base, permission was granted in 2000 to convert it from agricultural use to a green burial site and 16,000 indigenous Northumbrian broad leaf trees were subsequently planted. The site is a small, independent, family-run concern and is not affiliated or connected to any councils, religions or other large corporate organisations.
The burial area is situated at the North end of the site with a large pond and natural brook bordering to the south. Since returning the land back to its natural state native flora and wildlife have, and continue to flourish. Agricultural links are carried on to help maintain the other 11 acres of pasture on the site, so sheep and horses are kept and crops of hay are taken as fodder from the pastures. The burial area is planted with a wild meadowland grass and a separate area has been created for infants and children in the remembrance garden. As burials take place small young trees are planted at the head of the grave.
