Who are we?
We are the Weston family of Cappleside House in the village of Rathmell. We own and manage the Cappleside Estate which has been in the family for 7 generations and, as well as the burial site, includes 70 acres of small woodlands, fishing on the Ribble and of course, farmland.
The farm has full organic status with the Soil Association, and produces beef from its native pedigree Hereford cattle. The woodlands are managed using sustainable forestry practices, and provide timber for fencing, firewood, woodchip and traditional charcoal as well as oak floorboards and beams for renovations - the doors and windows in the Haybarn were all from Estate timber. For years, most of the Estate land been dedicated to Environmental Stewardship Schemes, which seek to improve maintenance of dry stone walls, restoration and planting of hedges and trees, the management of traditional meadows for flowers and ground-nesting birds, and other similar projects aimed at protecting the environment.
The creation of a woodland burial site on our land is therefore very much in keeping with our philosophy for land usage, and is an important part of the estate as a whole. We personally oversee all maintenance and treeplanting on the site to ensure that Brocklands continues to develop according to our vision.
