In the 16th century, a stone quarry was opened there, from which many of Liverpool's public buildings were cut. In 1825, the quarry was exhausted, and a young architect, John Foster Jr, was comissioned to design a new cemetery, that became the city's main cemetery until 1936. The place is now a romantic public park, with a spring under the trees, a Greek Revival oratory and many old tombs, at the foot of the gigantic cathedral.

This is the side that is open to the public daily and you can wander at your own will and pace. Still very overgrown in some places but not quite as treacherous as the west side unaccompanied.

St Mary"s, East Stoke

In low-lying meadows beside the River Frome, a circular enclosure of thorn and brambles, and in the centre, the ruins of St Mary's Church...
