Book – Trees & Shrubs of Nunhead Cemetery

by Carol Stevenson.

Nunhead Cemetery comes as a surprise to a visitor who expects the mown grass of a lawn cemetery!

Opened in 1840, Nunhead was planted in a formal style, but over time, neglect and nature took over. Now the London Borough of Southwark and the Friends of Nunhead Cemetery work together to maintain the cemetery, keeping it’s woodland look in the nature reserve and making appropriate new plantings.

The wide range of exotic and native plants reflects the Cemetery’s history, and this book will help you identify some of the many species of trees and shrubs growing in it.

A5 softback, 50 pages with illustrations.
