Walks and Activities

Self Guided Walks and Activity Packs

To help you get the most from your visit to the Holy Ghost Cemetery, South View, Basingstoke, volunteers from the South View Conservation Group and Basingstoke Heritage Society have created a range of Walking Guides.

Each walk covers a particular theme and should not take more than thirty minutes to complete.

These full colour, fold out leaflets are available from the Basingstoke Discovery Centre and a number of Museum and Tourist Outlets around Basingstoke  and we hope you find the online information useful.

Please feel free to copy or download the Guides from this site for your personal use.
