General Cemetery Tree Walk

Type:Wildlife & Nature Event

Sheffield General Cemetery, Cemetery Avenue, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S11 8NT
Tree Walks

About

Meet at the gatehouse entrance at the end of Cemetery Avenue.

Want to learn about trees in a fun and informal way? Then join Sheffield Woodland Connections as we explore both the historic planting and current conservation efforts in the Sheffield General Cemetery. This wonderful place is a peaceful oasis close to the heart of the city and it is known for its fine specimen trees, some of which are uncommon in other parts of the city.

The main theme of this two hour long walk will be winter tree ID, using bark and buds to tell trees apart. All attendees will be provided with a link to a downloadable tree ID sheet prepared to accompany the walk. We will also be on the lookout for notable and veteran trees – tape measures will be provided to help establish their age.

Tickets: £7 adult; £5 unwaged; kids under 14 go free. Maximum group size: 20. Although the majority of the paths are accessible, the route will include some moderate slopes.

The on site cafe will be serving hot drinks and homemade cakes from 1.30pm. Three bookable history walks are also taking place at the General Cemetery on the day (see www.gencem.org for more info)
