Brompton Cemetery

Brompton CemeteryTo Brompton Cemetery, filled with supporters of Mr Abramovich's soccer team in their jolly blue shirts.

Mr Tesco's grocery emporium on Fulham Road failing to supply us with ice cream (for the day was unseasonably warm for early April), we repaired early to the Windsor Castle on Campden Hill Road for excellent cider.

St. Andrew’s Old Church

St. Andrew's Old Church is rather a mess. When we first visited in 2003, almost the entire site was overgrown. Paths were impenetrable, graves were covered over with a thick layer of ivy and brambles, and the few accessible parts of the site were daubed with spray paint graffiti.

I'm happy to say that recently, things have begun to improve. With funding from a trust established by the son of a woman buried here, clearance work has begun, and the cemetery is slowly being reclaimed from the undergrowth.
