Ribbleton Avenue gate closure
Please note due to pre-planned grounds work the Ribbleton Avenue gate will be closed until further notice.
This decision has been taken to provide access to workers, protect members of the public and to minimise any disruption to funeral services while work is ongoing.
Pedestrian entrances at New Hall Lane/Blackpool Road, Occupation Lane, and Miller Road remain open as normal.
