The site of the Cemetery was, previously, a rather grand Georgian estate complete with stately house which has long since disappeared. At one time it was planned to build Bristol Zoo on the site. However, the Zoo was finally located in Clifton and the developers of the day chose the site for their Cemetery. Arnos Vale Cemetery was designed by a group of local architects in the style of a Greek Necropolis, using trees and plants noted in classical legend. Situated on a steep hillside, similar to a Greek amphitheatre, it was planned as an Arcadian landscape. Its terraces were not only visually attractive, but significantly innovative. The 45-acres site today is of considerable ecological importance, having progressed from mediaeval countryside through Georgian estate to Victorian Cemetery without the use of chemical pesticides or insecticides in any significant amounts. There is very little urban land in the British Isles which can match that claim.
