The Glade has been created to provoke reflection and contemplation through symbolic forms, features and plants.

It is a space for quiet contemplation of service and sacrifice.

The Glade also provides an ideal spot for those who just want to reflect on what Remembrance means to them.

Denoting strength, the curved oak gateways provide an entrance into an inner sanctum.

The glade is a perfect circle of white stemmed Himalayan birches creating a sense of harmony and unity.

The central mirror reflects truth and brings light.

Remembrance honours those who serve to defend our freedoms and way of life.

We remember the sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth. We pay tribute to the special contribution of families, as well as the emergency services, and we acknowledge innocent civilians who have lost their lives in conflict and acts of terrorism.

In every act of Remembrance, we honour the memory of the fallen and we hope for a peaceful future.
