The information board at the entrance gives you the history of this sacred place. Some of its quietness is lost by being next to a large traffic island. Local volunteers are trying to clean the area up from years of neglect, I wish them well....More

So the girlfriend was up from Swansea and we were looking round St Mary Redcliff and decided to pop across the road to come see this little space. There’s not much to see apart from the cave entrance and a plaque. Some interesting history that...More

There isn't much to see but a public notice and cave entrance. We need to understand Quakers to understand the cave. The Christian religious group called the Quakers (The Religious Society of Friends) used this small plot of land as their burial ground for a...More

Pretty little garden opposite St Mary Radcliffe, with fascinating history and little nooks and crannies. Probably one not one for the kids. But worth it if your passing.

This graveyard, turned quiet escape, is a little eerie after dark. In daylight hours, it is a secluded space, uninterrupted by the busy city traffic.

So horrid to see all the rubbish in this place - a place which should be calm. Sad to see two homeless people have pitched tent here. Are we really a civilised society?

Opposite St Mary Redcliffe church on an unprepossessing urban roundabout, is the Quaker Burial Ground. It seems the Friends Meeting House once stood where the roundabout is now. The burial ground is now a quiet, essentially deserted, little park. They have moved all the memorial...More

An interesting area, on the way from the railway station to the docks, well worth taking a few minutes to look around it. Recommended.
