Hello? Union Street, SE1.

Cross Bones Graveyard, SE1- a medieval unconsecrated graveyard for prostitutes (called ‘Winchester Geese’ at the time because they were licensed by the Bishop of  Winchester).

By the 18th century it had become a paupers’ burial ground, which finally closed in 1853. A decorated shrine has now sprung up on the site.
