Willow Row Barrow, Cambridgeshire

Willow-Row-barrow-montage.jpg

Willow Row Barrow sits in a secluded spot in the Cambridgeshire countryside. It is a peaceful place to reflect and remember. The land has been looked after by the same family for nearly 200 years and is a haven for wildlife. A single standing stone is at the entrance of the site.

The barrow is circular with a domed roof. It has two circles of niches, enabling you to walk around the barrow without leaving the light. There is seating around the edge of each chamber. You can look out to the standing stone and the fields and sky beyond.

'We placed the ashes on the most beautiful sunny spring day with the sound of birdsong outside, we all felt being in the barrow had a profound uplifting effect. The whole experience has been amazingly positive at a time when it could have been total sadness' - Barbara, Hertfordshire

A legacy for generations to come

Willow Row sits on land which has been farmed by the Squire family for seven generations. Sir Peter Squire, official chemist to Queen Victoria, purchased the Bassmead Estate in 1845 to grow herbs for his renowned apothecary business in London. Today, the farm grows arable crops of wheat, barley, and oil-seed rape. It is owned by Richard and Cordelia Squire, who live on the farm with their three children. Richard has worked the land for 30 years while Cordelia is a physiotherapist and company director at Woodfield Physiotherapy Centre. She also manages the Squire’s wedding venue Bassmead Manor Barns.
They are both active members of the local community.

“We hope that Willow Row Barrow will offer a meaningful final resting place; a handcrafted monument set in the natural and peaceful countryside of Willow Row. For us, becoming custodians of such a unique monument has been a wonderful opportunity to recreate something very special. As guardians of the land we have a deep sense of continuity and look forward to the barrow being here for many generations to come, in fact forever.” - Richard and Cordelia Squire
