Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is one of only two Local Nature Reserves in Tower Hamlets. The park consists of 33 acres of woodland, grassland and meadows. There is also a pond and a wetland habitat. This area has been a park since the cemetery closed in 1966.
The October edition of Stone Stories, the newsletter of the Friends of Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is due out soon. The cover is a reminder that the days are getting shorter and we are moving into Autumn. Inside is a run down of some of the events held this year and and the programme for the future.
