Overview

'Perhaps the least known, but most attractive, of the great Victorian Cemeteries of London. Consecrated in 1840, it is one of the seven great Victorian cemeteries established in a ring around the outskirts of London. It contains examples of the magnificent monuments erected in memory of the most eminent citizens of the day, which contrast sharply with the small, simple headstones marking common, or public, burials. It's formal avenue of towering limes and the Gothic gloom of the original Victorian planting gives way to paths which recall the country lanes of a bygone era.'

Overview

'South Bank Ramblers formed more than twenty years ago. The group has a diverse membership covering a range of ages and backgrounds. Although most members are based in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, others are drawn from a number of London boroughs or even further afield. A love of walking is the group's engine and focus; for some it is a pleasure, for others a passion.'
