Grave Issues on the London Underground

Little Known London Underground Pictures - part two

I promised you a couple of pictures of the enormous
St Patrick's Roman Catholic Cemetery from mine and Neil's outing on Saturday. Neil had seen the cemetery from the Central Line train between Leyton and Leytonstone, many times from doing various tube challenges, although he'd never been to the cemetery itself.

It's an amazing sight to see 43 acres of graves and monuments and headstones and so many images of death packed together. Then you have the surreal moments of seeing the tube trains rattling past at high speed.

We spent hours there and only just touched the surface of the place. Check out Neil's blog for lots more pictures and some great silhouettes of some of the more imposing monuments.

Incidentally Mary Kelly who was Jack the Ripper's last victim is buried here, as is her landlord!
