Cemetery photos, Bath, England

I was in Bath last year at this time and posted photographs of cemeteries I visited (more info here and here in case you missed them the first time). On this trip, I found a new cemetery just five minutes from my flat. I believe it’s called St. Mary’s Cemetery; no longer in use, but it’s next to the active parish of St. John the Baptist church off Bathwick Street.

The inside of the church at St. Mary's is in ruins.

This doesn't happen in the States. I like the designation of "consecrated ground." It gives these places the seriousness and reverence they deserve.

Sorry, I come from a place where it's white with snow and well below zero. At home, I will not see something like this until May. These daffodils are outside St. John the Baptist church.
