Tips from locals

A cemetery from the 1600's where you'll find the graves of Nonconformists like William Blake, Daniel Defoe and John Bunyan. They have guided tours every Wednesday form April to October, but otherwise just pick up a leaflet and explore, or just enjoy the community garden.

Park and a historic cementery.

For a little bit of local history this is where William Blake and other non-confirmists were buried and it's at the end of the road!

Great to spend a few moments even if only with their earthly remains with John Bunyan, Daniel De-Foe, and William Blake. Just across the road from Wesley Chapel!

Ancient burial ground where Daniel Defoe, William Blake and John Wesley are buried and site of an old plague pit... Great for squirrel-feeding.
