Foster Hill Road Cemetery Event Details

The Friends of Foster Hill Road Cemetery host a number of themed talks during the year, which are open to the public and always prove very popular.  The Cemetery records are available at the Chapel during the Heritage Weekend in September and an annual carol concert is held near Christmas.  Other events are held to mark special occasions.

Members of the Friends lead several guided walks during the summer months. Each walk is themed and covers topics such as the Cemetery’s spectacular graves, its history, its wildlife, tales of those buried there and more.  Walks are also included during the Heritage weekend.  The walks last approximately 1.5 hours and the pace is gentle.  However, the cemetery grounds are uneven so a pair of stout walking shoes is recommended.

We are also happy to arrange bespoke walks for interested groups, please contact us for details.

The times and dates of our events vary, so please see our events calendar for more details.

Heritage Open Days – Guided Tree Walk

By popular demand, back again for Heritage Weekend, is Jo Roberts, to lead her fascinating walk about some of the magnificent trees in the cemetery.

Trees are amazing things that we just take for granted but she will show how they are wonderfully advanced to the point where they can protect themselves, warn of danger and help us in our daily lives. We often see a dog that we say is “clever,” but so are trees, as she will illustrate.

Jo currently holds the record for the highest number of visitors on one of our cemetery walks, but if it’s a sunny day, perhaps you’ll help get the figure up to 70!

Meet at the Chapel 10 mins before the start of the walk.

This event is free but a small contribution to the Friends would be welcome.

There will be refreshments available at the end of the walks.

(Please note: The cemetery ground is uneven so please wear appropriate shoes.
When viewing memorials, please do not lean on them.)
