Ludham, Norfolk – St Catherine’s

We rented a cottage alongside the graveyard at St Catherine’s church in Norfolk in September 2012 and were treated to glorious sunsets nearly every evening. We never managed to go inside however!

Tower Hamlets, London – Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park

Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park is a woodland cemetery in the East End of London, not as famous as Highgate Cemetery but equally filled with majestic Victorian monuments and secret alleyways with forgotten and overgrown graves. It is now a woodland sanctuary with lots of environmental events and historical information.

I used to commute to London by train every day, and the train goes past this cemetery . . . I would look out at the graves hidden in the woods and wonder about who was buried there and if it was still open to the public. Well it is, and it’s a fascinating place to visit. I went there with my brother on 17th May 2011.

City of London, London – St Paul’s Cathedral

I only have a few photos of St Paul’s Cathedral, all taken from outside and all taken when I was passing by on the way to somewhere else. It was designed and built by Sir Christopher Wren, after the previous building was destroyed in the Great Fire of London.

I used to work right next door to the Cathedral in Paternoster Row in the early 1970s, but the building was knocked down and rebuilt many years ago.

These photos get more colourful as we go along ­čÖé
