This project with Richard Griffiths Architects and the Parks Agency began physical work in spring 2019 after a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The cemetery, laid out in the mid nineteenth century, is grade II listed and home to several monuments and buildings listed in their own right. Our strategic masterplan set out to improve the sustainability of the landscape in terms of physical inputs and biodiversity and to make it visually more coherent and accessible. We then used the analogy of a quadrat to isolate elements of this plan, and allow the varied approaches to management to be tested and explicitly evaluated. Thus the present cemetery becomes animated by an experiment in its long term future.
