Situated in the heart of the city, Arnos Vale is now a vital green space in an urban setting. The Natural Burial Woodland is Bristol’s first natural green burial site. The first burial was 175 years ago of Mary Breillat on 29th July 1939 and at that time the surrounding landscape was open fields sprawling down to the river Avon.
Take the Discovery Trail or Woodland Walk for an intrepid passage through slopes and rough terrain in the urban wilderness. There is a designated buggy route for wheels and those less inclined for steep steps and rough terrain.
Arnos Vale is a hub for local events, with theatre, exhibitions, music, films and fairs taking place in the atmospheric onsite venue. See the website for the full programme.
Known as ‘the Father of Modern India’, Raja Ram Mohan Roy’s rare and beautiful tomb is now a listed monument and has long been a place of pilgrimage for Bengalis and Indians.
