Overgrown Statue in Abney Park

Overgrown angel in Abney Park

Abney Park Cemetery is, alongside Highgate, another of London's great Victorian cemeteries. The other's worth seeing are the Kensal Green Cemetery in West London and the West Norwood Cemetery in the south. Abney Park is no longer used and is in a pretty advanced state of dilapidation. Apart from being inhabited by (apparently harmless) junkies and winos it makes for an exceptionally pleasant place to walk. Surrounded by very busy roads it is amazingly peaceful and, once you are into the heart of it, it feels a million miles away from the city. Go to Next Image or Previous Image or LDN 3 Gallery
