Imagine Norwich’s ancient churchyards as a series of attractive gardens, full of people and activity
Existing and new groups of volunteers are central to achieving our aim of community involvement
32 medieval churches survive in Norwich city centre, which is more than anywhere else in northern Europe
Botanical themes illustrate the role of plants in the development of the city through the ages
Heavenly Gardens is currently focused on 14 of 32 churchyards in Norwich. As we attract more support and interest grows in our project we would like to roll our vision out to many more churches.
For now we are developing a series of guided visitor walks to help raise awareness of the wonderful medieval history of Norwich.
If this project is something that interests you, we urge you to get in touch to help fulfil the Heavenly Garden Vision.
