On Tuesday morning 15th November 2016, under gloomy skies, our latest Fungi Walk took place at Ryde Cemetery under the guidance of Dr Colin Pope of the Isle of Wight Natural History and Archaeological Society.


Now that the grass has been cut in the conservation area of the cemetery it looks very different, and we can see many things that were previously hidden from view.


RSHG have received another award, a Certificate of Excellence for the South & South East in Bloom, associated with Ryde Cemetery


There is a chill in the air when the sun goes down and the evenings draw in earlier, reminding us it is the end of summer


Join us on Tuesday 2 August. At this time of year the conservation area in the cemetery has so much wild-life, and the butterflies are everywhere.


The cemetery is a lovely place to walk in Summer, it is peaceful and there are many birds, insects and plants to see.


The fine weather has given an opportunity to enjoy a walk in Ryde Cemetery, and at every turn there is an abundance of spring flowers.


Take a walk through Ryde Cemetery and you will be amazed at the abundance of berries.
