Dem Bones



If you come across this entrance to St Olave's Church in Seething Lane unprepared, you may be a little surprised. They are here because the churchyard was used to bury Plague victims - look at the date and you will see that it pre-dates the Great Plague - there were too many, then.

Wow. Never knew it was there. Looks fantastic. Have to make some time this month to go there and take a few shots. Thank you for sharing. David - London Photographer

Living with Christ is my gain from death
