Green Burials @ Offa's Orchard
Eco-Sensitive burials in the glorious countryside of the old Welsh county of Radnorshire
Our Green Burial Ground (Offa’s Orchard) occupies a unique position on the sunny, south facing slopes of the westernmost tip of Hergest Ridge. It is bounded by the 1200 year old earthworks of Offa’s Dyke, whilst the Gladestry Brook meanders its way throught the valley below.
Our aim was to create an orchard of rare and endangered native fruit trees and to encourage and protect the already prolific and diverse flora and fauna of the area.
In the private ownership of the Hughes family, Offa’s Orchard is ideally situated adjacent to our funeral home at Gladestry, thereby offering the convenience of all the necessary facilities in one location.
The ground is not consecrated, making it suitable for followers of any religion or none. Individual plots may be blessed by a minister of your own faith if you wish.
To maintain the integrity of our eco-credentials the only funeral directors permitted to use this burial ground are A. W. Hughes & Son.
