This small abandoned burial ground is situated within the village
of Ayot St Peter in Hertfordshire. Easily missed the gate is the only part visible from the road during the Summer and even
that might be missed to the casual passer by due to it's position on a fairly sharp and narrow bend.
Judging by the remains of a stone boundary wall we strongly suspect
that this was once the site of the original village church. As yet we have been unable to confirm this as very little information
is available, and there is no visible signs of a church structure or foundation within the burial ground.
Entering the ground you get the feeling that this place may go years
between visitors. Their is no litter and no sign of human presence, the only other visitor still remained, and that was
the skeletal remains of a deer.
Within, there are three tombs surrounded by ironwork, two of these
are of fairly impressive proportions and the third is no more then a stone slab with inscriptions. There is a small cluster
of headstones and one or two other monuments including what looked like a relatively modern red granite tomb almost totally
shrouded in brambles.
The photos here were taken with a poor quality camera due
to this visit being impromptu. We hope to return in the future to remedied that as soon as possible.
