The South View Conservation Group’s aim is to maintain the Holy Ghost Cemetery, which is a hidden treasure of 1.2 hectares of tranquil green space at the heart of modern Basingstoke.

The Holy Ghost Cemetery is rich in urban history, being the town’s graveyard from 1208 until it was full in about 1912 and contains the Grade II listed ruins of two chapels – the west wall of the 13th century chapel of the Holy Ghost and the tower and arched windows of the early 16th century chapel of the Holy Trinity, as well as being a rich wildlife area. There is much more on the history of this ancient cemetery on our website.
