At the launch workshop on the 27th March 2018, Andrea Gilpin gave a presentation to attendees introducing the new Caring for God’s Acre Beautiful Burial Grounds project. The project is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and will be working with citizen scientists to map the biodiversity of burial grounds.
We’re very excited that the project is running parallel with Discovering England’s Burial Spaces as there are lots of opportunities for collaboration. You can find out more about the project from Andrea’s presentation which is also full of lovely photographs which really do highlight how beautiful our burial grounds are.
