Superkleiner unspektakulärer Friedhof.

Vielleicht so groß wie ein halbes Fußballfeld und nahezu ausschließlich mit Steintafeln als Grabsteine. Auch die Gräber von William Blake, John Bunyan und Daniel Defoe sind äußerst schlicht und kaum erwähnenswert.

Größe: sehr klein

Alter: 19. Jh.

Skulpturen: keinemore
