Graveyard at St Peter's Church

St Peter's Church is accessed via the narrow road that leads to Petersham Nurseries and also from a footpath that runs around the graveyard, from where I took this photo.

The most famous grave here is that of George Vancouver and, to my shame, I learnt this from an in-flight announcement on my way back from Vancouver! When I mentioned this famous local down the pub I discovered that everybody knew about his local connections except me and that Vancouver Day celebrations where held in some of the local schools.
