  • A woodland oasis. A place to walk and find solitude, whilst listening to the many birds who call it home. On a clear day a wonderful view across London's skyline.
  • Wow, what an awesome place. Given that it was abandoned for so long there is a lot of overgrown shrubbery which gives it a unique look different to a lot of other cemeteries. Although there were other visitors there it was a good place for quiet and disconnected walk. Even though just a stones throw from central London this place seemed very remote with only the sounds of the birds disrupting the silence.
