Overleigh Cemetery, Chester, England

A Victorian cemetery designed by T.M. Penson in 1848. Edward Langtry, husband of the "Jersey Lily" is buried here.
It is one of my favourite cemeteries - it only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Chester, yet it is so peaceful you can lose track of time wandering around. It is built on a small hill, so even though you are yards away from the main road, you can hardly hear the traffic, and at the highest point you can look out over the River Dee. Only this morning I found a part I haven't been to before - I had to scramble down a slope to reach it, but the beauty of the old stonesamongst the wild flowers and ivy is a sight worth seeing.
