Enjoy a peaceful walk in Wisbech

More news, no ads


One of Wisbech’s gems is offering the chance to enjoy a peaceful walk through beautiful surroundings and enjoy the first signs of spring.

You can take a guided walk around Wisbech General Cemetery, led by The Friends of the Cemetery, on Sunday, February 9, starting at 2pm.

The cemetery is nationally significant as one of very few non-denominational burial places established in English towns and cities during Victorian times.

It is the resting place for several people of local significance, adding greatly to the town’s heritage and providing a rich resource for historians and researchers.

Snowdrops and other colourful flowers, plus birdsong, mark the approach of spring and this is probably the best time of year to enjoy the setting and see the cemetery’s monuments and their inscriptions.

Wisbech General Cemetery is in North End (PE13 1PE).
