Had a brief ArtPix outing to Bristol the other day, checking out various things, one of which was the incredible Victorian cemetery at Arnos Vale.

The site is full of overgrown and atmospheric Gothic graves or all shapes, sizes and designs, very similar to Highgate Cemetery. It also serves as an important natural environment for an array of insects, birds, and rather aptly, a colony of bats!


Being a potentially spooky place, there is also an air of mystery in the name. Sometimes there's an apostrophe on Arnos, sometimes there isn't. Like a ghost it appears then disappears!!
