Hungerford Cemetery

Hungerford, Berkshire

Hungerford lies about 8 miles to the west of Newbury. You may have heard of Hungerford - it was the scene of a series of random shootings on 19 August 1987, when Michael Robert Ryan, an unemployed antique dealer and handyman, fatally shot 16 people including a police officer, before taking his own life. A nice little cemetery, visited on one of those impossibly bright and deeply shadowy mid-winter days.

These tulips haven't survived comprehensive overnight frosts

There's something really pleasing about an old wooden cross

The tree is winning this battle for ground supremacy

A beautiful combination of multi-coloured lichens

In the cemetery not all is as it seems. These flowers are fabric

As indeed are these
