Randomly wandered into this churchyard a few weeks ago. I’ve passed it many a time on the bus, but have never thought much of it, other than it looking a bit creepy. Once in, it is initially quite unassuming, albeit pretty and green. But it’s actually quite an interesting place. Pictured here is the tomb of Sir John Soane (the architect whose house is now an exciting museum in Holburn), which was apparently the inspiration for the red telephone boxes.
It also holds a memorial tomb for Mary Wollstonecraft and William Goodwin, as well the meeting place of their daughter Mary Shelley and Percy Shelley.
If that’s not exciting enough, the church yard is directly next to Camley Street Natural Park, a very hidden nature reserve (which I still need to visit again.) in a very unlikely place.
