Photo prompt round-up – Gate – #writephoto

The photograph for this week’s prompt shows the gate to Sheffield General Cemetery, designed by Samuel Worth. The Egyptian revival gate leads into a Victorian cemetery with a derelict Anglican church and a Nonconformist  chapel at its heart. The architecture is a strange mix of Egyptian and Doric styles and the place is now a Listed site. Opened in 1836, the site was closed to burials in 1978 after over 87,000 burials had taken place there. The Dissenters Wall divides the burial ground into consecrated and unconsecrated grounds and there are catacombs beneath the hillside. Today the unkempt graveyard provides a sanctuary for wildlife at the heart of the city.

Gate

From present to past

The portal ‘twixt life and death

Always leads both ways
