Officially opened in 2020, the Hermitage Fields Memorial woodland was made available for memorial tree planting by Lancaster City Council. The newly established partnership with Lancaster City Council will see many improvements to the site including pathway and access works as well as establishing a new memorial woodland.
The memorial tree planting areas sits within a location that is renowned for its’ beautiful landscape and scenery, it is so beautiful that the visa was painted by famous landscape impressionist J. M. W. Turner (1775 – 1851) in a painting which led English art critic John Ruskin of the Victorian era to described the works and the panorama it is based on as ‘one of the loveliest views in England, and therefore the world’.
The memorial woodland does not just benefit from beautiful views but has easy parking nearby which also includes toilet facilities, picnic area and café known locally as Woodies. Visitors can also make use of the River Lune Millennium Park that links Caton and Lancaster but also links up to our Crook ‘o’ Lune memorial forest and wildflower meadows.
