Roseland is a small piece of land, in Glastonbury at the base of the Tor. Operated by The Martinsey Isle trust. A trust that focuses on preserving sacred and of historically spiritual importance. They believe in reliving the lost art of ‘the sacred death’ Viewings by appointment only.
What The Martinsey Isle Trust say:
“Roseland, a small piece of land, of about 2 hectares, lying just below the Tor in Glastonbury, had previously been used as agricultural land, and it was here that we decided to create a natural burial ground: in this area known as the ‘ingress and egress of souls’. By gathering together significant pieces of land; by supporting and planning to run green burial grounds; and by engaging in sacred research, these elements, are brought together: our heritage as human and spiritual beings. ”
What we like about it: Their humanistic and respectable vision of death. They may be small but the amount of dedication they have is huge.
