Bedford Event

On and Off the Footplate at Foster Hill Road Cemetery
On and Off the Footplate
Starts: 07 Apr 2019 at 2:30 PM
Ends: at 5:00 PM

The Friends of Foster Hill Road Cemetery host a number of themed talks during the year, which are open to the public and always prove very popular.  The Cemetery records are available at the Chapel during the Heritage Weekend in September and an annual carol concert is held near Christmas.  Other events are held to mark special occasions.

Members of the Friends lead several guided walks during the summer months. Each walk is themed and covers topics such as the Cemetery’s spectacular graves, its history, its wildlife, tales of those buried there and more.  Walks are also included during the Heritage weekend.  The walks last approximately 1.5 hours and the pace is gentle.  However, the cemetery grounds are uneven so a pair of stout walking shoes is recommended.

We are also happy to arrange bespoke walks for interested groups, please contact us for details.

Bill Davies spent 42 years on the railways in the driving grades starting as a humble cleaner at Toton Depot in 1964 before moving to Nottingham, Kings Cross, Charing Cross and finally Bedford where he spent his last 29 years.
