Roof of western catacombs, Gravesend Cemetery
Roof of western catacombs, Gravesend Cemetery
This old part of the cemetery is a grade II*(star) listed 'park or garden'. It was opened in the 1830s as a paying pleasure gardens but rather quickly converted into a more profitable cemetery. These catacombs, which the architect was keen on but the public weren't, were not a financial success, and were never completed. The view is taken from the top of the eastern part, which was demolished and remains as a raised bank.
