DROP-IN AFTERNOON  Sunday 19th November 2017   1pm - 3pm

    Zion Graveyard, Lawrence Street / Zion Lane, Attercliffe, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S9 3RG

    Drop in to say hello.  Meet volunteers working to create a peaceful wildlife haven in the midst of industrial Attercliffe. This beautiful sanctuary will whisk you back into a forgotten era while the stories of those buried there will bring alive this once vibrant community.

    Visit the grave of Anti-Slavery Campaigner Mary Anne Rawson and the Read family of Wincobank Hall who were involved in many social campaigns to improve the life of the poor and oppressed through the world.

     Find out about some of the other members of the Zion Chapel congregation buried during the 19th century. 

    Come and help pick up the litter or clear the ground, cut back some overgrown brambles and ground cover.

    Or just sit awhile and think.

    Friends of Zion Graveyard are currently running a fund-raising campaign to purchase and protect this precious heritage site and link it in to the emerging Don Valley History Trail.
