Coming in Summer 2020
In 2016 we began to work with the Town community to reinstate an ancient path leading from Bedford Square to the south door of the All Saints’ Church. This project, part of the Restoration and Renewal Programme of the parish, is aimed at improving access to the church for people with walking difficulties and wheelchair users, as well as young children in push-chairs.
The path is to be laid mainly using brick paviours to provide a solid, non-slip, walking surface that will complement All Saints’ medieval architecture and the brickwork of the tower.
We are calling this a Memorial Path as this is to become a dignified place of remembrance set in the beautiful surroundings of All Saints’ churchyard. To this aim the path will be flanked by memorial plaques (or slabs) which can be personalised with names of loved ones, as well as their years of birth and death.
The size of the plaques is 200mm x 150mm x 50mm and has a capacity of 16 characters overall (please, see example plaque in the photos). The memorial slabs cost £60 each; and the funds raised from their sales will offset the cost of relaying the path.
Our call for sponsorship is open to everyone. The loved ones you wish to remember do not need to be buried at All Saints’, or indeed in Houghton Regis.
Opening Summer 2020
Works on the Memorial Path will begin in late June 2020 and last around three weeks. We continue to welcome sponsorships for memorial plaques. Sponsor one today!
