    Default Roman Catholic Graveyard, Caister Road , Gt Yarmouth.


    Just across the Road from the Pillbox, this is Yarmouths Roman Catholic Burial Ground, a quick explore before the sun went down!

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    What are some of the dates on these graves? Gotta know how long it took to look like this.
    Nice work!

    Blimey, that's been left a while! Looks in the first pic that there's a tended area, and an unkempt area?

    I remember the chapel that once stood at the end of the path in the first shot; must be at least 20 years ago.

    Yeah your right there Wagg it was a good 20 years ago at least. I do like a Graveyard or an Ossuary.

    I have passed this location many times on my way to Gt. Yarmouth, but I have no idea what kind of graveyard it was. Great find. Good pictures.

    HISTORICAL NERD WARNING - I am about to make myself look extremely sad!!!

    It is highly unlikely that there would be any graves dated pre 1870, as Catholics were not emancipated in Britain (i.e. it was illegal to be a Catholic) until the late 1840's and most communities did not have a Catholic church until the 1860's. To put this into perspective, Westminster Cathedral was not even started on until 1895, so with graves from 1870, this is a real piece of British Catholic history!!

    Apologies for historical nerd moment
