Weekly Photo Challenge: Hidden

How often do we walk past something or somewhere regularly, wonder what it is or what is behind the wall, but never stop to find out?

On my daily walk to work, as I cross one of the roads, just down from the crossing I can see  a set of black wrought iron gates, set in a stone wall.  Frequently, I think I must take a look through those gates, to see what is there but until now never have done.     The Weekly Photo Challenge of  Hidden was just the reason I needed to go and take a peek.

This is what I found hidden behind the wall:-

 

 

Because I couldn’t gain access to the graveyard, I was unable to discover what the granite monolith below  is or if there was anything written on it.   It was, however, a strange thing to see in a graveyard.

 

The most special discovery of this graveyard was this notice:-

Thank you Weekly Challenge to give me the nudge I needed to find what gem was hidden from me on my walk to work.

  1. I love this post! The iron work is beautiful and the headstones. I wish that could have gotten in. We have the oldest cemetery in our state is the Tolomato Cemetery in St. Augustine. It is always locked. I just found out that is open for a few hours on the 3rd Sunday of each month. I can’t wait to get in there and take some photos. Thanks for sharing! The photos are wonderful!

  2. Stunning photos that allows all of us to think and reflect. Cemeteries are fascinating. It houses a lot of myths and fears when in truth, it’s simply a place for the dead to rest and be remembered. Happy Halloween.

  3. It opens its gates about twice a year, not sure when but its a magical place, a couple of years ago the council got a bit over enthusiastic and cut back much of the planting. Glad to see that the cemetary has reclaimed its wildness for plants and wildlife. Wonderful photos
