Abney Park Cemetery

Shot with Olympus E510
I suspect that most people have a soft spot for ramshackle, overgrown cemeteries - if you don't know Abney Park Cemetery, prepare to be amazed. Walking through the gates, as you leave the busy street and the dense foliage wraps around you, you feel as if you have stepped into an unwritten chapter of the Chronicles of Narnia.

One of London's "Magnificent Seven" cemeteries, it is almost entirely overgrown. You can see just how much in satellite map picture.

I am always somewhat surprised to see how close the people are planted in some places. There are no wide open spaces between the graves as there are here where I live. I suppose it has something to do with crowding or selling too many grave plots.
