Andy and I cycled to Kensal Green Cemetery today mostly via the Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal.

The cemetery is full of the famous and the non-famous (nice to see so many locals). We found many of them with the aid of a map. We also missed a great many (Wilkie Collins, William Whiteley, John Passmore Edwards, Thackeray, Trollope, Henry Mayhew, etc) but we did manage to see Blondin, Pinter, Dr James Barry, the Brunels, Babbage, etc.

My favourites were the memorials to Robert Owen and to other reformers (I was delighted to see how many of them were women):
