The Rhododendrons are finally being cut back!

Work got under way mid-July to cut back the rampant rhododendrons which have take over large areas of the older part of the cemetery and smothered a lot of graves. To the west of Section C and round the “rose garden” they are being cut back to shoulder height to make them more manageable. Blackburn with Darwen Council have funded the work.
