Rivers of Life Trail
Friends of Spital Cemetery in conjunction with Don Catchment Rivers Trust have produced an amazing 'Rivers of Life' trail.
'Rivers of Life'
This is a a self-guided riverside trail exploring the hidden natural and industrial heritage of Chesterfield. It starts at Riverside Retail Park, follows the river Hipper and ends in Spital Cemetery. It covers industry such as Robinsons, Harrison’s Boot Manufacturer and Hipper Leather Works and has lots of interesting things to identify along the way.
Friends of Spital Cemetery have also created an activity sheet for children to identify things as they walk round the cemetery. Can you find the bug hotel or the leaning angel?
