Search St Roche's Arboretum:

The 49-acre St Roche's arboretum was started in the 1830s. Edward James kept his golden pheasants in the arboretum and made a significant contribution to its planting, specialising in exotic, pendulous, contorted and twisted trees. It is appropriate that this should be his final resting place. He is buried beneath a massive slab of Cumbrian slate inscribed by local artist John Skelton with the simple words 'Edward James, Poet 1907 - 1984'. It was as a poet that Edward wished to be remembered.
