Cross Bones Graveyard 1

Cross Bones Graveyard 1
Bright sunlight makes it hard to read the plaque. It says:
"In medieval times this was an unconsecrated graveyard for prostitutes or "Winchester Geese." By the 18th century it had become a paupers' burial ground, which closed in 1853. Here local people have created a memorial shrine. The Outcast Dead R.I.P."
