44. Kensal Rise

Kensal Rise is on the Bakerloo (Brown) Line.

The station is above ground and as I left I spotted these massive sunflowers nodding towards me.

I was visitng Kensal Rise today because there is a very famous cemetry there. It is the oldest cemetry in London and over 700 famous people are buried there.

I didn't find the graves of the three I was most interested in - William Makepeace Thackeray, Anthony Trollop or Winthrop Mackworth-Praed. But there were some amazing monuments there.

I loved this tree.
