Friends Old Burial Ground in Hillsborough


As part of the restoration of the Hillsborough Castle, attention has been paid to the old Quaker Burial Ground there. After discussion with Quakers, it was agreed that paving stones with some of the history of the Quakers in the area and other Quaker Quotes would be installed in that section of the Castle Gardens. Above is one of the stones. Visit the castle to see the burial ground and the rest of the stones. We are advised that future development may possibly include the addition of a seating area within the burial ground itself, and permission was sought from and approved by Monthly Meeting to remove a few of the trees to enable this.
