Abney Park Cemetery

More snow photos? Oh, go on then. We took a slightly bracing walk into Abney Park Cemetery yesterday – it’s basically on my doorstep and I’ve never visited it in seven years of living in the area. Shameful, as it’s really beautiful; ‘like Narnia’ as Josh put it. It’s much bigger than I thought, with loads of pretty trees and some beautiful old grave monuments, and even a somewhat creepy abandoned church in the middle. It didn’t really stop snowing here all day, so it got pretty thick.

    We walked through Abney Park cemetary last time we were home in December! Narnia is such a great comparison – it’s a whole little world. We didn’t make it to the church though – sounds very creepy indeed!

    I have been loving your snow photos both on the blog and on instagram. So beautiful! Thank you for sharing your London snow, hoping for some all the way over here in Seattle.
