Bunhill Fields

This is one of the most important graveyards in London, of note as it was for the various non conformists who refused burial in sacred ground of Anglican churchyards. It holds the remains of some of the most important people of the 17th & 18th centuries.

Looking to City Road entrance where I was welcomed by a really cute squirrel, a prize performer but of course he was after food even while he chattered to me while working on a chunk of bread he’d already found.
