Bath’s ‘hidden’ burial ground

David Taylor’s informed me of the last Open Day for 2023 involving Bath’s historic Jewish Cemetery.

He says – as part of the Heritage Open Days series – it will be free to wander around on Sunday, September 10th between 11 am and 4pm.

David tells me:

“About 100 people from Bath’s 18th and 19th century Jewish community are thought to be buried in this peaceful semi-secret place behind high walls.

There is a printed guide – or if you bring your smartphone you can find out about the history of the community and find online biographies for the people buried here with our online guide.

The burial ground is located on Bradford Rd by the roundabout entrance to Mulberry Park, 1 Greendown Place BA2 5DD. Bus no 2 from Bath Railway Station stops close by.

Free parking along Bradford Rd. Wheelchairs can come down the steps via a ramp (though the ground is uneven once inside). 

We will also be hosting two artists as part of Combe Down Art Trail.”
