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.
