    Join DCRT & the Friends of Spital Cemetery for a bat walk through the cemetery and along the nearby river.


    We will be looking for different species of bat, using bat detectors to hear their fantastic calls (which the human ear cannot detect!) Watch and learn how these incredible nocturnal predators hunt for prey and navigate around the landscape.


    Limited spaces: Please book a space through our EVENTBRITE page


    We will meet at the Tool House (53.232169, -1.415337) which is a short distance inside the cemetery from the top gates (53.232770, -1.414984). Parking is available on Cemetery Road and inside the cemetery along the avenue of lime trees which lead from the Top Gates to the Chapels. Please wear sturdy shoes. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. 

    This walk is free but donations to the work of the Friends of Spital Cemetery would be gratefully received.
