PRAYER ZONE: (All Faiths & People)
The chapel yard to the east of Two Gates Ragged School offers a small Prayer Zone overlooking the historic Black Country with Dudley Castle in the far distance. The grassed area is easily accessed via a wheelchair friendly pedestrian ramp.
Bench seating is dedicated to the memory of Annie Turner (1910 – 2014). Here visitors have the opportunity to enjoy rest while exploring faith and spirituality. It is a reflective zone based on themes such as prayer, remembrance, local heritage, the natural environment, justice and identity.
The Prayer Zone at Two Gates Ragged School is broadly Christian in perspective but is accessible to all faiths and to all people.
Two Gates Ragged School is one of the places that together form the Cradley Trail. It is also part of Cradley Memorials Heritage Trail. These trails can be used by visitors to plan safe walks about the village to explore Cradley and its unique heritage.
You can download the trails (below) from the website or link to the interfaith payers website.
