A FREE guided walk exploring the history of Sheffield General Cemetery is taking place this weekend.

The tour, organised by the Sheffield General Cemetery Trust, will detail the cemetery’s past from its beginnings in the 1830s to the present day, and will feature tales of the lives of its most notable eternal residents.

The event starts at 2pm on Sunday at the Cemetery Gatehouse on Cemetery Avenue off Ecclesall Road, and lasts for around 90 minutes.

It is free to attend, and no booking is required.
