Arnos Vale Cemetery

This may seem a macabre family day out, but we went to the famed Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol today. My husband grew up near it and I was keen to have a look around this gothic cemetery. Much of the cemetery is overgrown with some gravestones being barely visible under moss and ivy. Many of the trees date back to the Victorian times when it first opened. 

Here are some of my photos. Out of respect, I only photographed really old gravestones.






An absolutely beautiful place, and well worth a visit. There is also a good cafe on site which offers delicious light lunches and cakes at very reasonable prices.

  2. Small world! I recommend the butternut squash soup in the cafe, if you are passing. You are so lucky to have it almost on your doorstep.
