Location and access

The site is on public land and easily accessible. Below is a map of the public transport and parking. York OS map


There is unrestricted on-road parking along Fordlands Road. Please do not park in the spaces in front of the Cemetery. The route from the MacArthur Glenn Designer Centre Park & Ride is marked (dotted line). It is a 10 minute walk from the site and the bus stops are marked on the map.


There are regular busses to and from the centre of town. Busses go along the Fulford Road towards Selby, Cawood and Riccall. However, the simplest and most regular bus is the P&R Silver line (7) that passes the Railway station and stops beside the site. (The bus stop is known as Fordlands Road The return stop is 100m towards town on the opposite side.)


It is a 2.5 Km walk from the centre of town via Piccadilly, Fishergate and Fulford Road. However, there is a path beside the rivers and a Millennium Path that are signed towards Fulford. The path is paved for much of its way and follows the river Ouse.

Washing and toiler facilities

There are facilities at the Cemetery so ask at the office if you need access.
