Bath Voice News: just one month to go before the next Heritage Open Days when Bath’s historic Jewish Cemetery welcomes visitors to this little known piece of the city’s social history

Bath’s historic Jewish Cemetery Open Day. Sunday 10 Sept 11am to 4pm, entrance free.

Part of Heritage Open Days. Last Open Day for 2023.

About 100 people from Bath’s 18th and 19th century Jewish community are thought to be buried in this peaceful semi-secret place behind high walls. There is a printed guide – or if you bring your smartphone you can find out about the history of the community and find online biographies for the people buried here with our online guide.

The burial ground is located on Bradford Rd by the roundabout entrance to Mulberry Park, 1 Greendown Place BA2 5DD. Bus no 2 from Bath Railway Station stops close by. Free parking along Bradford Rd. Wheelchairs can come down the steps via a ramp (though the ground is uneven once inside). 

The cemetery will also be hosting two artists as part of Combe Down Art Trail.
