Spent an interesting time wandering and photographing. Much of the place is well kept but some is overgrown, interestingly labelled 'conservation area'. Not conserved in it's original state.

Living on Allensbank Road I'm lucky to get to walk through the cemetery often. It is very peaceful and on the whole well maintained. I went on one of the organised tours with live actors towards the end of last year, very interesting to gain...More
