Spotlight on Darwen's cemetery's heritage
12:58pm Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
HERITAGE open days will take place with the Friends of Darwen Cemetery this weekend.
The two-day gathering at Darwen’s Western Cemetery will show visitors what the group has achieved since its formation in 2010.
The group will give tours of changes made in that time including the refurbished wildlife and memorial gardens.
There will also be guides for three heritage walks and a ‘help desk’ point with information about tracing your family history and locating family graves in the cemetery.
The friends, who last year commemorated the cemetery’s 150th anniversary, aim to improve the look of the cemetery and also encourage everyone in the town to take an interest in the heritage and wildlife which the cemetery offers.
The event on Saturday and Sunday is between 11am and 4pm. Enter between the two lodges on Cemetery Road and then turn left by the cross of sacrifice.
