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.

A large cemetery with some fantastic architecture and some wonderfful stories surrounding some of the graves. It is worth getting a leaflet which tell the stories. It is also a haven for wild life

I used to live near here and was always surprised by the peacefulness so near to main roads. There were some really interesting leaflets giving thematic trails - for example famous people and masonic insignia.
