Another Victory Park Walk

It was such a beautiful day, and I am really trying to spend more time walking, so had a wander around Victory Park. There was a new bench to commemorate the fallen of the borough in the 100 year anniversary of the end of WW1, and also a new tree for the same purpose. I thought this was a lovely idea, sorry that I missed the dedication back in November.

There were some fabulous shadows to be photographed, thanks to the strong sunlight. I walked back via the station path and stopped in the newly refurbished garage for a coffee, which I took back to the park and drank on the new bench, basking in the late winter sunshine.

Sunbury Cemetery

I used to visit this cemetery with Mum when I was very little, as she did a painting of the yew avenue, but we also enjoyed the peace and quiet. The place is sadly not as secluded as it was in the 1970's, with new housing built nearby overlooking the graves, but as a taphophile who loves skulking around graveyards I still found pleasure in my visit.

My Grandpa's memorial in the main cemetery - it's certainly unique!
