Standards and Feedback Bumble Bee on Teasel

Sun Rising Natural Burial Ground and Nature Reserve is proud to have been awarded a Green Flag in July 2015. At the time, only one other natural burial country in the country had been awarded a flag, and we are the only site in the region to have one.

The Green Flag award scheme was launched in 1996 to recognise and Green Flag Logoreward the best parks and green spaces in the country. The rigorous Green Flag judging process measures each site against a list of criteria which includes cleanliness, safety, sustainability, heritage conservation and quality of management.  It continues to represent the national standard of excellence against which parks and green spaces are measured.
