Kensal Green habitants
If you could choose the place silent and wistful, perfect for looking into yourself and sorting your mind, what would it be? Victorians loved to spend their afternoons in cemeteries. Many of graveyards were designed not just as resting places for the dead, but as parks. People had picnics there, taking their kids with them, sitting under the trees with books and filling their lungs with fresh and quiet air, thinking about their past and their future.
Some parts of Kensal Green in London are park-styled, too. Most of the cemetery (the Anglican part), though, has naturally formed paths with no benches in sight. But why would you need them if your goal is to see as much as possible? The Kensal Green's magnificent stillness, solemness and tragediennes keeps attracting modern visitors, giving them an opportunity to plunge deeply into the history and their own minds.
