Arnos-Vale

Arnos Vale Cemetery, Tues 7 July 2015

Arnos-ValeA guided tour

Following the talk organised by Bristol Civic Society and given by Alan Bambury last December on Arnos Vale – The Architecture and Symbolism of a Victorian Garden Cemetery, we have now organised a private guided evening tour of this very special place, which was almost lost forever in the 1980s. The tour will last for about two hours.

The cemetery, which was established in an Arcadian landscape in 1837, is now managed by Arnos Vale Trust. The Friends of Arnos Vale Cemetery provide vital financial support for the Trust’s restoration work.

Arnos Vale Cemetery includes a number of listed buildings and monuments, notably the Grade II* listed Church of England Mortuary Chapel and the Nonconformist Mortuary Chapel, as well as about 30 Grade II listed monuments.

6.30pm: East Lodge, Arnos Vale Cemetery (just off the A4 Bath Road).
Some parking on site. Strong footwear advisable.
Members: £7, Non-members £10. Booking required.
