Golden Valley Woodland Burial Ground, Alfreton, Derbyshire

Set in a tranquil corner of the wooded Golden Valley Country Park, near Ripley, in Derbyshire, this Woodland Burial Ground is truly special, being the only one in the country that has a preserved steam railway line running alongside.

The Woodland Burial Ground is just under one acre in size and is accessed by a footpath that goes into the Country Park from behind the Newlands Inn at Riddings, near Ripley.
