Howley Hayes Architects have began the conservation programme of the many monuments and grave markers on the site. A condition survey of all monuments and the graveyard wall has been conducted, and a Masterplan for the graveyard will be implemented over the coming year. The design concept looks to create an accessible illuminated path throughout the graveyard with associated landscape works and an ecology and biodiversity management plan. The conservation and landscaping works are part of a wider effort to facilitate public access to this historic place. You will find out more information on the progress of works in the information below and also on our blog.
Archaeological digs have also been executed on site in previous years. You can find out more about the discoveries and relics found at St James's Graveyard in the information listed below.
