St John's Cemetery, Newcastle upon Tyne - Newcastle upon Tyne

A burial board cemetery of 1857 where the twinned northern entrance lodges and ornate joining arch (all listed grade II) are derelict and subsiding, the latter permanently propped. The chapels (grade II) are unused and fenced off although in fair condition. Boundary walls are subsiding. Many monuments are in poor condition, including the Mather Tomb (grade II), which is also fenced-off to prevent further damage. Terraces and steps on Miser Hill are in poor condition and overgrown.
