Woodland Burial Ground, Upton

Planning Approval

Initially conceived as a floating island, the non-denominational chapel is surrounded by a moat. In reference to the River Styx, the moat widens to become a reflecting pool at the southern end of the site. Inspired by the form of ancient burial mounds common to the area, the complex nestles within a curving landscaped berm, giving the impression that the sunken spaces have been carved into the landscape.
