The historic nature of the site, the age and fragility of its structures and the rich abundance of wildlife means that great care needs to be taken when exploring.
Please don't stray from the marked paths as there are areas of concealed subsidance, collapsing graves and unexpected branches and brambles.
If you decide to explore the more minor paths which have not been surfaced, we advise that you wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
Always be aware that stonework may topple or crack, that paths may be slippery and that trip hazards - including fallen branches, roots, animal burrows and sunken stones - abound.
Please keep an especially close watch on children.
Dogs are welcome but they must be kept on a lead at all times and their messes bagged up and placed in the nearest bin, to avoid unpleasant discoveries by our conservation volunteers and harm to wildlife.
See the site's notice-boards for further Health and Safety advice, including seasonal hazards and what to do in the unfortunate event of an accident.
Paths and roads can be slippery, uneven or have concealed tree roots and loose stone masonry that can act as trip hazards. Some paths are steep making them unsuitable for wheelchairs or prams. Please avoid cordoned off areas for your own safety.
Contact East Lodge reception on 0117 971 9117 for further information and advice on your access requirements.
Arnos Vale continues to be a working cemetery and place of remembrance. Please be respectful towards other visitors who may be visiting graves.
