I finally got around to taking some more photographs in St Michael’s Cemetery, Bath when I was back visiting the folks last year after lock down lifted again. Hidden at the back were bushes laden with ripe blackberries, which mummy I went back to pick later that evening.
I used to walk through Locksbrook Cemetery in Bath on my way to and from school most days for several years. It took you off the main road for a little while, and silenced the sound of cars. Mum and I walked through there on our way back from charity shopping and I took a few photographs.
On Sunday we decided to take a look around Thundersley Glen, followed by an unexpected turn around Coombe Woods, and finally a look around St Peter’s Church graveyard.
Photos taken whilst walking around Hadleigh, pottering along roads not yet wondered. Today’s walk included a bit of Daws Heath and Thundersley.
Mum and I visited the historic market town of Corsham back in March. It was a lovely day so we took a few photos of St Bartholomew’s church with its graveyard full of primroses (and a very friendly cat).
On a recent trip back to Bath to see the folks, I decided to take a look around the little cemetery at the end of the road. It was used as a bit of a spooky playground as a child and a cut-through for my paper-round as a teenager, so has always been one of the fixtures of my childhood and not a place I’ve really taken the time to look over. It turns out the two chapels within are more interesting than I thought, but the sun (and time) was not on my side so I only took a few close-up photos. Next time I go back to Bath I’ll try to get some more.
I visited Arnos Vale Cemetery (a vast place) last March and thought it was about time I sorted out the photos I took and publish them. It had been about seventeen years since I last visited, at which point it was in a bad way with some parts so overgrown as to be completely impenetrable. It is now a wonderful place to visit and wander around without fear of falling into an open grave!
I was such a lovely day that I took my camera out to take a few snaps of Leigh On Sea as we strolled in.

On the trail of ancestors, mum and I visited St Mary’s Church in Old Dilton (aka Dilton Marsh, near Wesbury in Wiltshire) where some of our ancestors lived in the 1700’s.
