Description

A special tour of the cemetery looking at the cemetery's geological features - from a look at the 18th century hillside quarry it was landscaped from, to the many different local and nationally sourced stones and granites which were used in the creation of its buildings, structures and monuments. And see the unique stone spiral feature which contains examples of all the stones used in the cemetery.

Led by geologist Peter Kennett.

Tickets £3, tour starts at the Gatehouse, Cemetery Avenue (off Ecclesall Road)
