Greatness Cemetery Guided Walk Sunday 7 November

We’re pleased to announce that we will be leading a walk on Sunday 7 November from 11.30 until 13.00. The walk is free and available to all, including children aged ten and above. Please bear in mind that some of the ground we will be walking is uneven and may be muddy depending on the weather, so suitable footwear and clothing is advisable.

All appropriate COVID 19 restrictions at the time will be adhered to.

Local historian Matthew Ball will speak about the Great War, telling a diverse range of stories regarding local people buried in the cemetery, from a Crimean veteran who appeared at early recruitment meetings, to a local victim of a Zeppelin raid, a Conscientious Objector’s family, and officers and men of The (Queen’s Own) Royal West Kent Regiment. The tour includes graves in the care of The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and many private memorials. To book, or for any other queries, please email matt@sevenoaksww1.org
