Arnos Vale Cemetery is the place of remembrance for an estimated 150,000 women and girls from Bristol’s history and this tour aims to tell some of their stories.
The lives of women in times past often elude the historic record. But where historical evidence can be found, the lives they led and the contributions they made to society make for compelling stories. This tour helps set the historic record straight focusing on the interesting, talented, great and good women remembered here from Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century Bristol.
Arnos Vale Cemetery is not a fully accessible site. The tour route includes some steps, steep slopes and muddy or uneven paths. Wearing warm clothes and sensible shoes is strongly recommended. Please do bring a torch.
