Being able to hire out the Grade II* listed Non-Conformist chapel in the heart of the cemetery, as well as our Airbnb beautiful Grade II* gatehouse flat is bringing in income which enables us to support the conservation and heritage work done by our volunteers who work in partnership with the city council.
