GUIDED TOUR OF WARRISTON CEMETERY
A guided tour of Edinburgh’s first designed garden cemetery, opened in 1843, formerly neglected in parts but now being cleared of excess weeds by the Friends of Warriston Cemetery. Many of Edinburgh’s Victorian society members lie within, some with distinctive monuments and all with stories to be told. There are architects, artists, astronomers, botanists, doctors, entertainers, historians, horticulturists, ministers, military personnel, photographers, scientists, sculptors, teachers – all manner of occupations. And there’s wildlife too, in this Local Biodiversity Site.
