Stepping Out to Bexhill Cemetery


22nd May, 2022 at 2:00 PM

Bexhill Cemetery, Turkey Road, Bexhill, TN39 5HT

Walk: Another tour of this ever popular site. We shall consider the lives of those who have travelled the world, some who have remained all their lives in Bexhill and those who have gone halfway around the world and back again. Amongst the presentations we shall visit actors, a suicide and a Brylcreem Boy. We shall finally put to rest the mystery of a memorial and visit the grave of a fireman whose features are very well known – but who is not Fireman Wise. There is some uneven ground so sensible footwear is recommended.

There is a charge of £4.00 for adults and £2.00 for accompanied children on each walk. We regret that no dogs are allowed on these walks. Local public transport timetables should be consulted regarding availability on the day. The walk leaders are Museum volunteers and all proceeds go to Bexhill Museum.
