Newtown Road in Newbury was a cemetery I had heard about and noticed on the map while planing a trip along the Kennet and a nearby disused railway. On my way back through the town I had planed on taking in the cemetery but time did not permit this so over the Christmas Holidays I thought I would pay a visit and finish a part of another railway project of mine.
I found my way through Newbury to Newtown road and came to the cemetery. All the following photos were taken through the cemetery railings.
My first view of the cemetery taken through the railings along the road.
From one of the entrance gates you could see the footpaths through the cemetery.
Looking North from the gate another footpath.
Walking back along the path you could see some beautiful memorials
The whole cemetery looked well kept if not used any more.
One of the notices said maintenance had been carried out on the trees and some areas looked to have been heavily cleared of shrubbery.
Other parts looked like they were waiting the grass to be cut.
In the background the pollarded trees could be seen.
Near the chapel were more graves one with a kneeling angel.
The chapel looks like it could still be used.
