In this first of the ‘Walkley Historians’ 2024 History is Here talks, Walkey Historian Hugh Waterhouse will be revealing more about Walkley’s Victorian Cemetery, its stories, characters, masons & monuments and its history through war and peace. Hugh is a renowned local historian, a leading member of several local groups including the Friends of Walkley Cemetery, which is marking its 20th anniversary this year. It is thanks to the Friends that Walkley Cemetery is now so much more accessible and well researched. Come and hear its stories, whether you are already among the Cemetery’s regular visitors, or whether you have yet to discover this peaceful and fascinating corner of Walkley.
