Our Hidden Cemetery Audio Tours
After a long wait we have finished our audio podcasts for the Gifford Place Cemetery in Plymouth, PL3 4JA, you can hear the three podcasts here.
We will be opening the cemetery on Sunday September 5th between 11-3pm when you will be able to visit the graves and listen in situ. This will be part of the Jewish Heritage Days. If you want to book a slot contact Jerry Sibley on 07753 267616 or email@example.com

Our Gifford Place Podcasts were funded by Mayflower 400 Community Sparks
In light of the current pandemic and knowing that the old Jewish cemetery on Plymouth Hoe will not be open for some time we have re edited our Audio Trail so you can listen in one sitting, wherever you are. CLICK HERE to hear it and all our other ripple audios.
What they said about our earlier trails…
‘I made it to the Jewish cemetery, along with several hundred other people! Beautiful, moving audio artwork.’
‘A revelation…goosebumps…wonderful work’.
An absolute gem of social history. I can’t believe I have lived here 62 years and have only just discovered here. Thank you thank you
…amazing, a beautiful little gem that we are very honoured to have experienced.
Fascinating project, you really brought the tombstones to life! Such wonderful characters
