i dont feel like opening it (it will more than definately freeze my computer) but is that the tv show where people pay o go on for a minute or whatever, and just say what they want? if so, i have seen it once or twice, and it is interesting.

The History of Speakers Corner
Speakers Corner has been a place of assembly for those battling for their rights since the middle of the 19th Century. It was here that the Chartists, the Reform League, the May Day demonstrators and the Suffragettes held many of their greatest battles, tens of millions have assembled here and many have won reforms!
This section will provide a comprehensive documentary resource for those who want to investigate this place, the first space on earth where Free Speech was guaranteed. Visit the Speakers' Corner History

One of The Suffragettes(wich you might have heard of because of the Bowie song) is buried here.I used to go here to relax and read often.

Brompton Cemetery is a cemetery located in Earl's Court, a part of the Borough of Kensington & Chelsea in west London, England. It is managed by the Royal Parks of London.
While the cemetery is still open for occasional new burials, today more people use it as a delightful public park (and a notorious homosexual meeting place) than as a place for mourning the dead. It has featured in a number of films, including "The Wisdom of Crocodiles" (starring Jude Law), "Crush" (Imelda Staunton and Andie MacDowell) and "Johnny English" (starring Rowan Atkinson); as well as being used as a location by photographers such as Bruce Weber (see "The Chop Suey Club"). Brompton Cemetery is now administered by the Royal Parks agency.

Ahh! wonderful. I can;t really add anything to this. i'll just say that it is a good thing.


aaahhh, i thought maybe it was not one specific place, but.. a sort of "chain" of places.

History

The cemetery was opened as part of an initiative in the mid-19th century to provide seven large, modern cemeteries (sometimes called the 'Magnificent Seven') in a ring round the outside of London of which Highgate Cemetery was another example. The inner-city cemeteries, mostly the graveyards attached to individual churches, had long been unable to cope with the number of burials and were seen as a hazard to health and an undignified way to treat the dead.
Brompton Cemetery was designed by Benjamin Baud and has at its centre a modest domed chapel (in the style of the basilica of St. Peter's in Rome), reached by long colonnades, and flanked by catacombs. The chapel is dated 1839.
.
 
 

Nutkins gravestone


Beatrix Potter who lived in The Boltons nearby, took the names of many of her animal characters from tombstones in the cemetery and it is said that Mr McGregor's walled garden was based on the colonnades. Names on headstones included Mr Nutkins, Mr McGregor, a Tod (with that unusual single 'd' spelling), Jeremiah Fisher, Tommy Brock - and even a Peter Rabbett.

That site looks boring. They should have someone redesign it.

I doubt that their aim is to have high tech graphics on it but,yes,the design is rather spartan looking.
