Four Peaceful Habitats
The ancient Bluebell Wood is Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park’s inspiration. Abundant with woodland wildlife, and thousands of beautiful bluebells in Springtime, it is located at the rear of the Burial Park, and is truly a special resting place for a loved one.
The Woodland Meadow flows out of the ancient Bluebell Wood and nestles against the perimeter of the Diamond Jubilee Wood. The meadow features 100 trees planted by school children from the local community in 2013.
The natural beauty of long grasses and the trees, coupled with the backdrop of the Bluebell Wood, make the Woodland Meadow a desirable and peaceful location within Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park.
Diamond Jubilee Wood
The Diamond Jubilee Wood sits between the beautiful Wildflower Meadow and the Woodland Meadow. The wood was established using 4,800 saplings which were planted as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and form part of the nation’s six-million tree Jubilee Woods legacy overseen by The Woodland Trust.
Saplings at Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park include beech, oak, lime, silver birch, holly, hazel, box, wild cherry, sweet chestnut, pine, crab apple, dogwood, guilder rose, hornbeam, scots pine, hawthorn, field maple, horse chestnut, alder and crack willow.
The knee-high Wildflower Meadow has been sown to create colourful grasses and flowers attracting birds, bees and butterflies. The meadow sits at the front of the park. Cut once a year to encourage new growth and positioned behind the managed Hawthorn hedgerows, the meadow is an abundance of colour in the spring and summer.
Wildflower species at Norfolk Bluebell Wood include Common bent, crested dogstail, sheep’s fescue, slender creeping red fescue, smaller cat’s-tail, yarrow, common knapp weed, wild carrot, oxeye daisy, birdsfoot trefoil, rib wort plantain, cowslip, self heal, meadow buttercup, common sorrel and bladder campion.
