From the village hall walk into the village past the war memorial and turn right along Brown's Lane. 

Follow the path straight on in front of the houses to junction with a track. Turn left, in front of Humberstone Villas, and follow the path around to the right to the junction.

Turn left and follow the footpath and road to a T-junction. Cross the road and walk straight ahead following the path between the fire station and the houses.

The path bears right, and then crosses a field to the turning head in Evison Way. Continue in a straight line, ignoring the road to the right. Follow the footpath right after the last house on the right, between a fence and hedge and along a dyke bank.

The cemetery was opened in 1880 with its two chapels - now grade II listed buildings. Originally one was for the Methodists and the other for Church of England. 

Turn left where the path meets Jubilee Road and then continue to the crossroads. 

Turn left onto Keeling Street and follow it all the way back to the village hall.
