Friends of Raikes Road Burial Ground

With kind support from Skipton Town Council.

Visiting the burial ground

At the moment the burial ground is currently not routinely open to the public.

However throughout the year there are a number of open days and events where members of the public are welcome.  Details of these are given on the website and in the local press.

If anyone sees anything like this on sale on the internet or anywhere else, we (and the Police) would be glad of the information!
