New Kilpatrick Cemetery :: Shared Description

The cemetery, also known as Hillfoot Cemetery, opened in 1903, and is on the northern side of Boclair Road. Between the Wars (c.1922), it was extended to the north. Its former lodge, at the SW corner, is now a private residence. The line of the Antonine Wall passes through the cemetery, changing direction near the crest of the hill, and two sections of the stone base of the Wall are preserved and open to view (one since 1903, the other since 1921). As mentioned in the cemetery's listing text LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland) the pathways in the cemetery's northern half were laid out to form the outline of a Roman centurion's helmet.
