The Hardy Tree

Hundreds of old gravestones circle an ash tree in the churchyard of St Pancras Old Church in London. Of course, they weren't how they were originally laid out. So, how did they, as it were, get to this, their final resting place? And who was responsible for that? Long before he became famous for novels like Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Far From the Madding Crowd and The Mayor of Casterbridge, Thomas Hardy (like any other aspiring writer) had to find a job to pay his way around the world. His chosen field was to be architecture, because of the construction of the St Pancreas railway during the 1860s, to remove bodies from the churchyard. The headstones placed around the ash tree at that time make a very nice setting
