Hard Hat Day - Saturday 24th March 2018

As part of the Heritage Lottery funded project, Wisbech Society hosted a visit to the General Cemetery at North End, Wisbech for a close up view of the building work to the Chapel.


We had 40 visitors, with those who’ve been before interested in seeing progress, as well as people who have found us more recently, especially those with family members buried here.

The building renovations have progressed well and the display of how it will look was popular with visitors.


It was a great day for the project and we thank everyone who came along and look forward to seeing you again at our future events!
