Interactive virtual tour of the beautifully overgrown Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol

Posted in Art on Friday, 8th August 2014 at 9:21AM

A few months ago I stumbled across Arnos Vale Cemetery whilst waiting for a train in Bristol.  It initially looks like quite a swish place to be buried, with it's own cafe and everything - what more could you want!  However as you venture off the main paths you find large areas of the cemetery that have been left for nature to reclaim and the result is most enchanting.  There are head stones that have become melded with trees and crosses entombed in ivy but best of all there is virtually no-one (breathing) there so it feels like a real oasis in the middle of Bristol.

I promised myself that next time I was down in Bristol on business I would bring all my camera equipment and try and capture the graveyard as a virtual tour and this is the result.  You can find out a bit more about the graveyard on my Dorset Virtual Tours post or at
