We had a great clean-up day yesterday at Bath Jewish Burial Ground. We weeded and cleared rubble left over from recent improvement works. Still much more to do, but it’s a start. Thanks to all who attended!
Bath Jewish Burial Ground seasonal clean-up. Sunday, 30th June, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers needed, with spades and pick-axes. Please lend a hand!

Our stonemason did the work with great sensitivity, ensuring that the character of the tomb was not changed even as it was strengthened and restored.
Here is some of the detail showing the recent restoration of one of our Georgian chest tombs. The tomb is sturdy now and secured against any further deterioration.
