The Friends’ second Guided Walk of 2017 took place yesterday in wonderful sunshine. The theme of this walk was ‘Democracy in Doncaster’  and included several Doncaster Mayors, an MP and a women’s rights campaigner. The walk also included the story of one of several Chief Constables of the County Borough of Doncaster who are buried at Hyde Park Cemetery. This particular gentleman was Williamson Etches (d.1869). On the photo below, one of his descendants stands at Williamson’s headstone, flanked by Helen and Phil from the Friends committee.

All of this year’s remaining Guided Walks can be found on our Events page.
