Progress with New Street wall

The boundary wall at the New Street (western) end of the cemetery is being repaired at present by contractors working on behalf of Doncaster Council. The wall was damaged by the roots of the black poplar trees, which were eventually felled two years ago.

Meanwhile, the Friends have submitted an application for planning permission and listed building consent to install railings on the wall, between the masonry piers. If the application is successful, the work on the railings will begin from the northern end of New Street, working down the hill as funds become available. We already have sufficient funds to begin the work, through a generous private donation from persons who wish to remain unnamed.
