Just a little graveyard

in Penzance.  We went on a walk one morning....and you know how it is you just happen upon a graveyard.....actually in small towns in the UK, that IS what happens.  Some of those towns have more dead people than living, I am sure of it. :)

So, we happened upon St. Mary's church cemetery on a cold (very) Autumn day.

This was an interesting graveyard.....I have a lot more pictures to share.  Be back soon.


  1. Cool find....
    There used to be an old, tiny graveyard near the house where I grew up. It was hidden out in the woods, and had headstones like those, dating back to the 1870s. Several of them were for infants.


  2. One of the things I love about living in England is the fact you can just bump into graveyards when on your travels. We have some good ones ;-)

  3. There's one similar to that in Portland, Dorset, by the ruins of St. Andrew's church. It's fascinating reading the tombstones. Especially the ones with a skull and crossbones on them. I assume they mark the grave of a robber or pirate.

  4. Amazing shots!! I want this in my front yard...year round! I'm sure the homeowner's association would approve! ;-)

  5. There is nothing more beautiful than a lonely, overgrown cemetery. Beautiful pictures!
