Skeleton Key and myself set off to London for an explore that we had tried a fortnight earlier and failed to gain access. We had an hour or so to burn before darkness and I remembered a derelict chapel that I had seen a week or so before. Tottenham Park Cemetery is a small private burial ground dating from 1912. At the near the bottom wall sits this beautiful derelict chapel Couldn't really find much in the way of history on the internet apart from this strange piece.... On the night of Halloween 1968 a graveyard desecration by persons unknown occurred at Tottenham Park Cemetery in London. These persons arranged flowers taken from graves in circular patterns with arrows of blooms pointing to a new grave, which was uncovered. A coffin was opened and the body inside "disturbed". But their most macabre act was driving an iron stake in form a cross though the lid and into the breast of the corpse. The source is the London Evening News, 2 November 1968 The entrance to the chapel had a burnt out and presumably stolen car wedged in through the doors
Where to start! Obviously I won't bore you with history as it is all over this forum. We arrived here a bit late from London after having a nightmare on the trains, so we knew we had a bit of a flying visit due to the lack of daylight - although the clocks going forward helped us out! Managed to see a lot, including the tower and the padded cell. On the way out it got dark very fast, and the walkways and buildings can be very disorienting, especially when there are sagging/nonexistent floors all over the place. We were trying to get into the building we got in through, but we were in the one next to it, so coming back into the covered walkway a security guard who spoke very broken English and carried a large plank of wood caught us. We were walked to the nearest exit and waited with him and his partner until the police arrived. Won't go into that, but we got a lift to Epsom station! So not too bad. This is not a good place to be in the dark, mainly because you need to see where you are going, but also because security tend to be a lot more suspicious, and your torchlight gives you away!
