Hambleton Crematorium taking shape
The latest drone footage shows that work on the new multi-million-pound Hambleton Crematorium on the outskirts of Thirsk is progressing well.
Work began on the council led crematorium build in November, with the development work now very much underway.
The 22-acre site which will be named Maple Park, is close to both the A1 and A19 and will include a service hall to accommodate approximately 120 mourners plus additional room for standing. There will also be an entrance foyer, waiting lobby, offices and a family room.
As well as this, the single storey facility will include a wake facility and café with beautiful views out over the Hambleton hills. Once completed the site will also offer a memorial garden, meadows and a wooded area making it a calm and peaceful place for reflection or for scattering ashes.
