This historic, East London burial ground is the last resting place of many distinguished non-conformists as well as some 120,000 fellow dissenters, all buried here between the late-1600s to the mid-1800s. The cemetery was designed solely for those who rebelled against political or religious orthodoxy and houses the graves of William Blake, John Bunyan and Daniel Defoe among others great thinkers and artists. Now a community garden, the macabre spot is a popular green space close to Old Street station, providing nearby workers with a pleasant spot for lunch.
