Long Barrow: Burial Chamber in Wiltshire

A fantastic Long Barrow columbarium where ashes can be buried for ever.

Do you like tradition? Do you like the ancient Britain? If so we have found the right place for you.

A history expert has built the first Long Barrow in England for maybe over a thousand years. This Long Barrow* is situated in the Wiltshire on the Marlborough Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty and is between Avebury and Stonehenge. An ancient landscape renowned for its chalk downland and ancient history. The long barrow is designed to complement the landscape perfectly.

It has been built in a traditional style from natural materials and contains three hundred niches for ashes to be placed. It is aligned to the sunrise of the winter solstice when the sun will illuminate the internal stone passageway.

The niches have niches built into the natural limestone walls. Each niche is about 600mm by 600mm and 400mm tall and is designed to be a family vault for the storage of cremated remains in urns. Depending on the size of the urns six to eight can be placed in each niche. The niches can be sealed with a memorial stone if required. There are also smaller niches for single and paired urns.

The cost: standard niche costs £1200 these can house five sets of ashes. An individual lease is £400. A double space for two urns is £600. They are on a 99 year lase basis due to the peculiar legislation that surrounds it, but I think you may assume perpetuity. Cost may change over time so please check.
