On a recent trip to Scotland we visited the Old Calton Burial Ground in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1718 it became a place of interment for the local artisans and tradesmen of the Burgh of Calton, but later became popular and many eminent literary, scientific and artistic figures were also buried here.
Although it is well cared for and tended now, it must have fallen into decline over the years as most of the mausoleums are now simply shells of their former glory.
