The Old cemetery.

The current cemetery for Louth in Lincolnshire lies on the outskirts of the town.  For many years though it was located right in the centre of the town adjacent to the parish church.  When the new cemetery  was opened the older one was cleared, all the headstones were stacked around the perimeter and the central area grassed over.  It's now a very pleasant parkland area affording a pathway across the centre of Louth and also the best view of St. James' Church, the Parish Church.  St. James Church is reputed to have the highest spire of any Parish Church in England and Wales. 

Old Cemetery, Louth, with St. James Parish Church. 

Showing some of the many ancient headstones.

Although the stones were cleared of all undergrowth a few years ago nature has taken
over once more and I for one feel the stones have a much more natural appearance now.

Some of the larger memorial stones.

Crich National Tramway Museum. (Part 1 of 2)

The National Tramway Museum

The National Tramway Museum, at Crich,  in Derbyshire, England, is situated within Crich Tramway Village, a period village containing a pub, cafe, old-style sweetshop, including the tram depots. The village is also home to the Eagle Press, a small museum dedicated to letterpress printing including an 1859 Columbian printing press. The museum's collection of trams runs through the village setting. Visitors are transported one mile out into the countryside and back, aboard the varied fleet of trams.

The trams at Crich mostly ran along the streets of cities in United Kingdom before the 1960s, with some trams rescued and restored (even from other countries) as the systems closed. The town of Matlock is close by and the nearest train service is from Whatstandwell railway station on the Derwent Valley Line (Derby-Matlock line), with a steep walk up to the museum at the top of the hill.

The Tramway Museum is set in a natural limestone gorge.
