Snapshots: Celtic Cross headstone


Abney Park

I don’t know about you but by now, I’m so done with all the post-November 4 election results/talking heads/endless analysis chatter and very ready to get back to doing normal things, like finding interesting headstones.

This fabulous Celtic cross is in the Abney Park cemetery in London. Since most of the headstones there date back to the mid 1800s, I’m guessing there’s a good chance this was carved by hand.

The angel lurking behind it isn’t too shabby, either.
