OUT AND ABOUT IN LONDONíS SUMMER / KENSAL GREEN CEMETERY

This programme provides a major insight into the constantly changing face of
attitudes to life throughout the centuries. Each lecture is a broad view of a particular theme coupled with a closely connected visit to a place of outstanding attraction.


Opened in 1833, Kensal Green cemetery is a veritable parkland of tree-lined avenues punctuated by monuments of every shape and size. The architecture of its buildings, Lodges, Gateways and the Anglican and non-conformist chapels is outstanding, in the vogue of the Greek Revival of the 1830s. The hundreds of Victorian monuments are historic treasures in themselves and the great and the good including royalty are all there. It is sufficient to say that among those we will see are the tombs of Bazalgette, the Brunel family, George Birkbeck and Robert Smirke.
