Wow!! My daughter and I took the opportunity to visit the Crossbones Graveyard, and I'm so glad we did. Luckily when we arrived, the gardens were open, so we could walk around and sit quietly, there were shrines and altars all around the gardens. The clooties tied to the gates were just so touching. Crossbones is one of those places... 更多
I quite liked this place, although there isn't a whole lot to see. Check ahead for when it is open so that you can walk inside, as the hours are limited. They are currently doing some landscape work and trying to keep the developers away. There are some interesting signboards that talk about the history of the cemetery. It is... 更多
Just to say a big thank you to the two ladies, who we spoke too. These ladies give up their free time, along with other members to keep this memorial garden open to the public. The memorial garden is in remembrance of the sick, disabled, helpless children, ladies of the night, disadvantaged poor, whose bodies estimated to be around 15.000... 更多
An oasis of calm in a busy city. The perfect place to get to grips with the grim and dirty past of London and understand who are the real villains in the plot. I was honoured to be part of a private ceremony. It will live on within me.
Crossbones was a medieval unconsecrated pauper Graveyard with about 15,000 bodies buried there lots of them prostitutes. Now a memorial garden is being very sensitively created it is very moving to walk around and there is a fence covered in votive ribbons messages and poems many people have left tokens, crosses, icons, ornaments even a Buddha. Well worth visiting and... 更多
This is a really pretty with little memorial garden with a really interesting but somewhat sad story behind it, definately worth a visit if you are in the area.
There is not much to see but I understand it is going to be developed and access allowed. The fence is covered in ribbons commemorating the people buried here from medieval times to victorian times. Research is still going on and as remains are identified then a new ribbon with the details is added to the fence. A moving tribute... 更多
The Cross Bones graveyard is worth stopping by as you take a walk around Borough (the area immediately south of London Bridge.) I encountered it after walking through the courtyards of Guy's Hospital; the alleys off Borough High Street that contained for hundreds of years inns in which travelers stop if they reached the area after the south entrance to... 更多
Last resting place for thousands of lost women and children from medieval times. Volunteers have created a modest but lovely memorial garden, well worth a visit. A haunting reminder of a cruel past when abuse of women and children was commonplace in this part of our great city.
