Event details

Local historian Edward Bennett will lead a two hour free tour of the Symonds Street Cemetery.

The myriad stories of the lives and deaths of the early settlers will astound and intrigue.

This walk touches on the subjects of 19th century scientific advances and the Victorian Cult of Death.

Meet at the fountain in the Symonds Street Park.

You will need to wear sensible shoes.
