The historic Jewish Burial Ground in Combe Down will be opening as part of the Heritage Open Days event on Sunday 12th September, with residents being encouraged to visit.
Around 80 people from Bath’s 18th and 19th century Jewish community are believed to have been buried at the site, and a guide has been created to tell visitors about some of them.
The volunteer group who take care of the burial ground have recently raised funds to restore the caretaker’s cottage at the entrance, and the newly laid floor, lime plaster walls and traditional door will be on display for the first time.
The wall along Bradford Road is also set to be repaired, after Bath and North East Somerset Council awarded a Bath Neighbourhood CIL grant to fund the work.
Stonemasons are due on site in the next few weeks to begin the project.
The burial ground will be open between 11am and 4pm. Entrance is free. It is located on Bradford Road near the roundabout entrance to Mulberry Park. Bus no 2 from the Railway Station stops close by.
