Three-acre restored cemetery with links to the past and plans for the future.
Who were some of the movers and shakers in Victorian Berkhamsted? Who were the strawplaiters, the butchers, the farmers, the whitesmiths? What did the restoration project involve and how is the Cemetery planning for the future?
A one and a half hour guided tour composed and delivered by a volunteer guide. Each tour will be individual but fascinating!
The June tour is loosely titled ‘Not from about these parts.’ Volunteer Karen Evans will share insights into eight individuals who started life in a variety of places and through different circumstances ended up in Berkhamsted.
Meet at the Rectory Lane gates (Victorian entrance off the High Street, Berkhamsted).
Rescued from neglect and restored for the community by the Friends of St Peter’s Church, this three-acre cemetery has a wealth of stories to tell.
