picture of headstoneA cemetery walk could sound like a strange thing to do but with Richard Greenaway in the lead, you are sure to come away with a head full of fascinating insights into the history of our city.

On  Wednesday 14 September, as one of the Christchurch City Council sponsored weekly “Walk’N’Talk” sessions, Richard will lead a guided tour of Linwood cemetery.

The walk leaves from Linwood Union Church, corner of Linwood Avenue and Tilford Street at 10:00am. If you don’t want to walk so far, meet at cemetery gates at the Buckley’s Road end of Butterfield  Street at 10:30am.
