Grave side history

A GUIDED walk will take place around Hyde Park Cemetary as part of Doncaster Heritage Festival.

History fans will be able to put their best foot forward around the town’s oldest municipal cemetery, on the theme of ‘Notable Doncastrians.’

The tour starts at 2pm on Wednesday, February 8, and is expected to last 90-minutes with the group meeting at the main entrance on Carr Lane.

Admission is free, although donations to the riends of Hyde Park Cemetery will be accepted.
