GalleriesLondon's Magnificent 7 CemeteriesAbney Park Cemetery (2016)

Abney Park Cemetery was the forth Magnificent 7 cemetery to be establish in 1840. It is located in Stonke newington in the London Borough of Hackney (N16 postcode). It is London's most important cemetery for nonconformist traditions, particularly Congregational, Baptist, Methodist and Salvation Army (William and Catherine Booth, founders of The Salvation Army are buried here). But while the founding directors of Abney Park were all Congregationalists, the cemetery was open to all regardless of their religious convictions.

I visited Abney Park in on the same 2016 visit to Lodon on which I visited Brompton Cemetery. But unlike Brompton, Abney Park has been closed to burials for many years and today it is a wild and overgrown haven for nature. I enjoyed getting completely lost in nature which I searched for angels!
