This week Claire is at Norfolk Bluebell Wood Burial Park to meet founder and owner Andrew Morton. The Morton family are Norfolk farmers and when they bought some land with an old wood which had millions of bluebells in, Andrew saw an opportunity. Having done his research in to natural burial parks, he set up his own. It has been a huge challenge and is a long term investment that matches his personal skills as a people-person who loves nature and wildlife and is interested in a sustainable business.
