Cemetery sunset

The little gothic chapel at the heart of the cemetery
Radnor Street Cemetery has featured on this blog many times - partly because of its proximity to my home (it is directly behind it) and also because it is always changing with the seasons and the time of day. I often watch the sun come up from the upstairs back room in my house though do not often get the opportunity to see the sun set from there as it is locked after daylight hours. This evening I walked through after 7.00pm (it was still open though should have been locked) the sun was setting on this Easter sunday, the birds singing. The cemetery is now a designated local nature reserve and the evening birdsong gave validation to this status - it is a little haven of nature overlooking our busy town.
The hillside avenue of trees - wonderful views towards St Mark's Church and the Railway Village
