Visited 2007. A wonderful haven entered through lychgate from main road. Land behind and to the left has been developed for expensive houses and is walled/wooden fenced off. Mature trees all round, cemetery has an overgrown Nunhead feel to it. Grassy area in centre where chapel was until demolished in 1990s.
