Arnos Vale Cemetery is included on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest as a Grade II* site. There are approximately 1600 historic parks and gardens on the English Heritage register compared with more than 500,000 listed buildings. This selectivity underlines the great importance of those historic parks and gardens which appear on the Register. The cemetery buildings, part of the landscape, and listed tombs and monuments have been restored following years of neglect under the previous owners.
This plan has been prepared following completion of the Heritage Lottery Funded restoration project which was delivered jointly by Arnos Vale Cemetery Trust and Bristol City Council. It sets out the ongoing development of the site to achieve the Trust’s vision and maintenance and management of the landscape.
