Visit to Highgate Cemetery Colchester Civic Society Thursday 10 September 2020

Guided tour with Colchester Civic society of Highgate Cemetery. After a tour of the West side of the cemetery, the original site, full of Victorian tombs, optional lunch at Lauderdale House, a house built in 1582. The build was possibly funded by Sir Francis Drake's Spanish treasure. Now a flourishing Art, Heritage and Community Centre, it is well worth a visit. After lunch wander around the East cemetery, the last resting place of Karl Marx, George Elliot, George Michael etc...
