Tithe Green Burial Ground, Calverton, Nottinghamshire
Tithe Green Burial Ground, situated within the boundaries of the historic Sherwood Forest, is approximately 9 miles north of Nottingham City immediately off the A614 Old Rufford Road. Close by are the villages of Oxton and Calverton. The Burial Ground, opened in 1999, comprises 36 acres and forms part of Oxton Estate which has been privately owned for nearly 500 years.
Meadow and woodland areas within the Burial Ground are now developing nicely and will in time form established areas for wildlife and wild flowers. The backdrop of Darcliff Wood also offers a unique perspective and reinforces the feeling of true nature whilst providing habitat for wildlife.
The vision is to continue to create additional woodland and wild flower meadows that will, in time, blend seamlessly with the existing woods and to provide a special place where we can pay respect to those we love in an environment worthy of their memory, whilst allowing people the opportunity to give something back to nature.
