Mary Wollstonecraft's grave at Old St Pancras church

Before I went to Round the Horne I had some time to spend in London.

The first place I went to was Old St Pancras, the little country church that stands in the shadow of the railway station. I was pleased to find it is now open to the public every day.

As it was International Women's Day I sought out the grave of Mary Wollstonecraft. She was buried in the churchyard there along with her husband William Godwin and his second wife.

Her remains were moved by her grandson Percy Florence Shelley to his family tomb in St Peter's Church, Bournemouth,
