This post may sadden you, it may disgust you, or it might even anger you. But what you are seeing here is the norm for Newtown. Graffiti is encouraged in this suburb. I am sure they would like 'quality' graffiti, but as you will see, that is rarely the case.
This is the sandstone wall which fences off St Stephen's church and graveyard. Originally, the graveyard had been a cemetery, with the church being added as an after-thought. The cemetery was fenced off by a group of businessmen to turn a profit in 1848. And, they succeeded! The cemetery (which was just over 12 acres) was closed in 1867 having buried about 17,000 bodies. The church was built near the main gates to the cemetery in 1874, and over the decades the cemetery fell to wrack and ruin. Eventually, three quarters of Camperdown Cemetery was resumed in 1948 for Camperdown Memorial Rest Park which opened in 1951. The bodies were left in the ground; just the headstones moved in behind this sandstone wall.
Tomorrow, come and look on the inside of this fence.
