ALL HALLOWS GLADE
But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing and the breath of all mankind.
A HAVEN OF PEACE
The Glade sits between All Hallows church and Gill Beck, adjacent to the lower graveyard. It is an area where nature flourishes, providing a place to sit or stroll, and enjoy the work of God's hand. It has, in recent years, been reclaimed from the weeds and invasive plant species, which flourish when left to their own devices, and is now a cared for 'wild garden', with footpaths and benches.
Space is available to install a small number of teak benches, as a memorial to loved ones who have passed away.
You will find a host of different birds living and feeding in this area, together with many species of flora and fauna. The diverse range of habitats, from the waters of Gill Beck to the mature broad leaved trees and wild flowers, provide an ideal environment for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
