A few photos of the Histon Road Cemetery and St. Giles' Cemetery off the Huntingdon Road

This morning I thought I’d wander up to St. Giles' Cemetery off the Huntingdon Road (going via the very interesting Histon Road Cemetery). I took a flask of tea and sat reading Tolstoy's Gospel in Brief in the sun for a very pleasant hour.

All photos taken with an iPhone6+ and the Filmborn app. Just click on a photo to enlarge it.
