    Default St Andrew's Churchyard


    Gates at southern end of the churchyard of St Andrew, Clifton.



    Birdcage walk through the old graveyard.



    Well cared for war memorial.














    Looking back from the northern end of the graveyard.



    History of the church (destroyed in an air raid November 24th 1940).

    the base of the walls.

    Thats a triffic site, and nicely shot. It looks like it is partly maintained, and partly derelict. Is that the case?

    Shame about the church, looked quite impressive. Bloody Germans.

    Close up on the tombstone; did anyone in that family live beyond 25?

    Cheers Mr CM. You're right the graveyard is partially maintained,
    I'd estimate that around half of the site is overgrown and the
    rest is kept neat and tidy.

    The tombstone you mention is for the children of the couple in
    the neighbouring grave, the ages of the children are 1, 10, 14,
    11, 12, 19, 19, 15, 29.

    Thanks RM. Yeah religious sites are in this season it seems.
    I've got my eye on a couple of churches and another two
    cemeteries, then I've got an absolute mother of a factory
    to check out, can't wait for that one.

    Some nice shots you have there bishop.

    Is it me or is it a little "death" related here at the moment? Is it a July tradition?
    Paperclips & tape can get you out of most situations.

    Thanks MacGuyver. Yes you're right there have been a lot
    of cemeteries on Derelict Places recently, not to everyones
    taste I know but I like them and there seem to be quite a
    few people on here who have a similar appreciation.

    July tradition? Nah I don't think so.
