Like most British civil cemeteries, Barton Cemetery was a product of the Burial Acts of the 1850s, which set out to deal with the problem of “over-full” churchyards. The original part of Barton Cemetery, with its chapels of rest, cemetery-man’s house and quality planting, is a fine example of Victorian public investment as well as being a pleasant green space today. Meet local historian Richard Clarke at the west gate of Barton Cemetery, for a guided evening walk. Booking is essential on 01652 660380.
