Places - Flaybrick Hill Cemetery

23 Jan 2021 4:42PM   Views : 725 Unique : 466

Cemeteries can be super places for photography, the older and the less well cared for the better in some ways. There are some very exotic disused chapels in the grounds as well. One to revisit when we can is the Flaybrick Hill Cemetery in Birkenhead, postcode CH41 0DG. We last went there a very long time ago, intended to go back and never went back. Do we ever go back? Yes, we do, but not to a very high percentage of places. Anyway, Flaybrick puts my local Tyldesley Cemetery well in the shade, both with variety of subjects and with size.

Here are a few images, freshly processed today, including a few on the end that were on the same SD card but I'm not 100% sure that they belong to this location. Never mind, I quite liked them anyway.

In the 1960's I used to work in the area of Brookwood Cemetery, Woking. It was, in the 19th Century the largest cemetery in the World and it had it's own railway station.
There was a small cafe in a corner which had a licence to sell alcohol.
Then, I did spend a lot of time wandering around within the walls of the grounds, mainly looking for the gravestones of famous people.
I did have some photos of some of the interesting structures, but the slides and/or negatives have disappeared.

To add to that, there is a long straight, quiet road through the centre of Brookwood cemetery, there are no streetlights. One night at about midnight I was driving a car with a foot operated dipswitch. It shorted out & set fire to the carpet also at the same time fusing all the circuits. This was halfway through the cemetery. I managed to get the smouldering carpet out but was stuck there in the dark until rescued.
