Nunhead CemeteryNunhead Cemetery is a 52 acre Victorian burial ground situated on a hill four miles south of Central London. A ruined Gothic chapel overlooks a large area of secondary woodland. Ash and sycamore conceal headstones, angels and impressive tombs.

Nunhead is popular with walkers, artists, photographers, genealogists and those who appreciate the wildlife of the site. The wooded area provides nesting sites for woodpeckers, warblers and jays.
