Royston’s Proposed New Cemetery

There is much disquiet being expressed in Royston about the proposed new cemetery at the Wicker Hall site at the top of Briary Lane, Some residents are concerned about funeral corteges trying to get up the hill when there are cars parked along almost the full length of the road. There are also concerns about the effects on local wildlife, the tarmac that is proposed to be laid on the ancient bridleway, and possible effects on the town’s watercourse.

Are you concerned? Please feel free to comment here and tell us what you think. Do you believe that Wicker Hall is the right location? And should the public know more about alternative sites that were ruled out?
