“St John-at-Hampstead is right in the centre of London but makes you feel like you’re in a little country church graveyard,” writes Tony Parsons in The Sunday Telegraph.
He adds: “The place changes beautifully with the seasons and the painter Constable is buried there.”
Tony Parsons is right. The churchyard is divided by a road with another church, St Mary’s Holly Hill, higher up. Both are delightful buildings protected by the churchyard.
