On December 24th the Friends of High Royds Memorial Garden & Chapel were informed, by the Telegraph & Argus, that they have been awarded a grant by the Gannett Foundation for their plans to develop a Sensory Garden as part of the restored three acre site.

The restored former paupers graveyard and derelict chapel has become known as an “OASIS OF PEACE” in an increasingly environmentally developed area. The proposed Sensory Garden is being developed to help those who are sight impaired or have Dementia issues thereby broadening its appeal to all sections of the community.
Work on the development will, it is anticipated now commence in the Spring of this year.
