Exwick Cemetery

District: 
Exeter

Exeter
Grid ref: 
SX 907 926
Map no: 
Landranger 192
Type of site: 
Victorian cemetery
Description: 

Quite a late cemetery (1875), but a nice typical burial board layout with a pair of chapels. The entrance is marked by stone gatepiers and a lodge.  A fine avenue of cupressus links the lodge and the chapels.  The cemetery has a large number of mature trees, mainly conifers, giving it a special sylvan ambiance. The extension to the west is of no interest and should not be included.
