  • Had a lovely walk on a crispy January winters day. It was serene, peaceful and gave us a chance to see some lovely stones. It's so quiet, you'd never say its in the heart of Stoke Newington! Will go.....  more »
  • If you want to find some peace and solitude in London for reflection this is the place. Left a bit to nature it has a lovely peaceful atmosphere and I could quite happily waste a few hours here.  more »

  • What a nice place to walk through. Has many really old grave stone to look at with allot going back to the 1800's. You can see rich peoples graves and poor peoples graves. There is also a huge church in the middle to go and look at with many shortcuts to pick. Amazing place
  • Tranquil area to take a stroll or just sit and listen to the birds.
