This is a fabulous victorian cemetery that deserves to be admired and revered. The volunteers who diligently and lovingly care for it whilst keeping its natural charm are fantastic. Great for photos.

It's always a pleasure to have a walk in this cemetery, and even more atmospheric on a misty winter's day. There are several information boards giving details of some of the people buried in the cemetery, and the birds and squirrels are a delight.

Well worth a visit, if you can find this delightful secret garden! Interesting historically and botanically. Perhaps best visited in the Spring months.

A typical victorian cemetery which is being lovingly cared for by the community. A huge expanse of land with loads of history. If you love exploring cemeteries you will love this one.

It never ceases to amaze that so few people know of the solitude and beauty to be found here...and perhaps that's no bad thing! it isn't a place for youngsters to run around, but one for old-stagers to stroll, sit and enjoy.

An interesting place to visit for historians, wildlife enthusiasts, gardeners or just for a quiet place to stroll. The grounds are maintained by volunteers who are improving the site with information boards and trails for children. Well worth a visit.
