Site of catacombs, Gravesend Cemetery
Site of catacombs, Gravesend Cemetery
The bank had, or was to have, the catacomb wall to the left, curving round to the brown obelisk just visible through the trees, a mirrored version of the surviving western part, see TQ6473 : In Gravesend Cemetery. These catacombs, which the architect was keen on but the public weren't, were not a financial success, and were never completed. Whatever was here of this eastern part was demolished some time later. This old section 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.
