Something interesting about wandering around Victorian cemetaries, thought I'd share some of the pics from today with you.







The Victorians built lead lined coffins ... you can see on this one the wood has rotted and collapsed. Interesting to think that the little china jug has survived 150 years ...







Interestingly, there were these two fellas ...

Very Nice.

If you are allowed to have a favorite Cemetary moment it would have been looking for Norman Rockwell's grave with my brother in law. We went to the NR museum, then checked into the Red Lion Inn, then went on a cemetary hunt to find the man. Found him buried between his two wives, both named Mary.

That's not the one in Chiddingstone is it? Looks very familiar.

Awesome shots. Brings back some memories of my father, brother and I searching for our ancestors graves in a few cemeteries on the Orkney Islands in Scotland. We arrived at the third cemetery, we had some doubts in finding their graves after striking out at the previous two cemeteries. As soon as we walked through the gate I saw a big rabbit. The rabbit was very hairy and much bigger than we were use to here at home. I walked towards the rabbit and it hopped off a few yards. I kept following it, it kept hopping. It stopped and let me get a little closer than before. I looked and the rabbit was standing beside our families tombstone. Talk about something that will make your hair stand on end. That did......

Dave, there must be something in the air about cemetaries... I took these recently. I live just next to a cemetary, it's a great place to wander indeed!

Great shots .. Very interesting places to roam around for sure. The neighborhood I come from has the New Utrecht Reformed Church Cemetary. They arent very good thought at preserving what is left. Too bad because the church was established 1677 and has headstones bearing names of people many Brooklyn NY streets were named after

Its all gated so you have to shoot inbetween teh fence railings
One shot I saved:

Thanks all, glad you like the shots
Slidejules - I can't get your shots to load, I think it's this dodgy public internet connection I'm on - so, I'll have a look later

This is Highgate in North London, where Carl Marx and many other famous folks are interred. Bram Stoker used one of the tombs to model as Dracula's tomb , which inspired a Vampire cult in the area at one point!





This one's in Pevensey

Beautiful, Dave. I love wandering through old cemetaries. Thanks for sharing... English gardens and English cemetaries are definitely on my list of adventures someday.
