Brompton Cemetery

Took a short cut through Brompton Cemetery on the way to the scandalously closed William de Morgan gallery

It is a long narrow strip of land I don't usually go in. It's very romantic and picturesque because much of it is not very well maintained. I hope they're actively striking a balance between neglect and nature conservation. There certainly were some lovely flowers and excellent blackberries, and butterflies too.

Not to mention this raven, which was not however croaking "Nevermore" but seemed rather pleased to have stolen the lunch of a lady sitting on a bench nearby.


  1. I love cemeteries, just wish could get up early enough to see them at sunrise.

  2. There are several big cemeteries around London most of them in a semi derelict state
