This is a special opportunity to learn about Wellington’s first cemetery and the history of the early buildings that were within it. Find out about the historic “time ball” procedure which provided a time service to residents from 1870 to 1906. See the disruption caused to the cemetery when the urban motorway was built in the 1960s. Hear the stories concerning the Public Sexton’s cottage (now gone) and the Anglican Sexton’s cottage – built in 1857 – which is still in good condition and the tour will visit.

Meet the tour guides at the Kinross Street entrance to Bolton Street Cemetery.

Spaces are limited. Tickets available from 15 August.
