Eltham Church Cemetery

At the corner of Eltham High Street and Well Hall Road lies a quaint and charming church, picture perfect with an old cemetery – headstones weathered over the years and rustic stonework on the church’s exterior.

A fabulous weekend to explore and switch off from city life, although city surrounds this peaceful scenery with shops and flats popping up in the backdrop.

Serenity still finds its way in and brings calmness to a rather hectic city.

Oldest I was able to read was this one from 1783.

This was a great way to spend a nice, sunny, spring day.  Church was in service, as well, which added to the ambiance of the day.
