Nunhead Cemetery is the second largest of the magnificent seven Victorian cemeteries. It contains many crumbling graves and statues, and an area known as the Dissenters' Triangle; the name pretty much explains it. It is also a local nature reserve with woodpeckers, owls, bats, foxes,...More

...I can see why people come here. We had loads of time to use before going to an appointment - decided to wander round here and see a grand Victorian cemetery. It didn't disappoint. The grandeur was everywhere, from the entrance to the headstones and...More

How many people would think of this place? I had overlooked it when visiting the the other great mid Victorian burial grounds but this place is easily worth an hour or so. Many impressive or touching tombs and sculptures. Numerous pathways and overgrown woods areas....More

If an estate agent was asked to describe Nunhead cemetery it would be along the lines of ‘many of the original features still visible, unspoilt, lots of potential’. In other words, much of Nunhead cemetery is overgrown. The council keeps the paths clear and there...More

What a place. I discover more each time I walk here. It's a mix of old and new, but it's the old and derelict part a love. It's like stepping into another world. Monuments akimbo and statues minus hands and heads that look like they...More
