Beautiful place for a walk, take the kids and find the fairy door in the secret garden. You can walk all the way to Peasholm Park. Lovely views through the valley. Highly recommend

This is a fabulous victorian cemetery that deserves to be admired and revered. The volunteers who diligently and lovingly care for it whilst keeping its natural charm are fantastic. Great for photos.

It's always a pleasure to have a walk in this cemetery, and even more atmospheric on a misty winter's day. There are several information boards giving details of some of the people buried in the cemetery, and the birds and squirrels are a delight.

Well worth a visit, if you can find this delightful secret garden! Interesting historically and botanically. Perhaps best visited in the Spring months.
