St Sepulchre's cemetery, Walton Street, Oxford
St Sepulchre's cemetery, Walton Street, Oxford
You can live in Oxford a long time without noticing this Victorian burial ground hidden away between the canal and the street. It's worth a visit for its Gothic ambiance, its yew tree avenue, its abundant natural vegetation (berries galore) and its graves which include Benjamin Jowett and other academic worthies, as well as a touching memorial to a young man killed when roadtesting a toff's racing car in the 1930's - his wife joined him in the grave some 60 years later.
