Brightwater Green Burial Meadow
A peaceful wildflower meadow and woodland beside a spring fed stream offers a final resting place for you and your loved ones
The burial meadow is located adjacent to an existing area of old meadow and woodland which already has a rich natural biodiversity, near the village of Owmby – 10 miles north of Lincoln. The surrounding land has been farmed by the same family for over 130 years. The family has a keen interest in landscape conservation and also run Brightwater Gardens in nearby Saxby.
The concept is to create a haven of peace and beauty where the woodland and meadow will be a lasting feature in the landscape. The site is being planted with glades of native trees in open meadow which is becoming a rich habitat for birds and other wildlife. It is an attractive landscape which is well balanced with nature and enhances the surrounding countryside.
Burials take place in areas of open managed meadow interspersed with glades of native trees where we encourage the planting of trees in memory of loved ones. All graves are clearly recorded to enable easy recognition in the future.
