Garden of Remembrance

Creating a new garden of remembrance in Hale.

After eight years of exploring all options and engaging with the community, it has been agreed to repurpose the Hale Chapels site and create a new garden of remembrance. 

What is happening

The project will see the unstable parts of the chapel walls reduced in height. Key features such as the gable windows and stone mullions have been incorporated into the design. The footprint of the chapels will be preserved by the laying of repurposed flint setts at ground level. 

The garden itself will be planted with trees and plants which feature in the bible which will create a calm but positive ambience. The trees include an almond tree which symbolises renewal, an olive tree for productivity, a fig tree for life and myrtle for recovery.  

About the garden creators

The garden has been designed by award-winning Graduate Landscapes and will be built by Landform who created the hilltop garden at RHS Wisley and have won multiple awards at Chelsea and Hampton Court.


The project is expected to take five months and be ready in time for the summer. 

Thank you

Farnham Town Council thanks Hale Chapels Trust, Hale History Project and the wider community for the hard work that has gone into finding a satisfactory solution for the chapels.
