This graveyard has a magnificent view over the sea. It is free to go in and it is just by the Tate and Porthmeor beach.In spring there are sometimes lots of primroses. The grave of the primitive painter Alfred Wallis is the main tourist attraction. It is towards the high end on the right as you walk up and Bernard Leach, world famous potter [go to the Leach pottery later] made lovely ceramic tiles for it which show a lighthouse. It is flat, unlike a lot of the usual monuments there which are interesting if you like that sort of thing. Wallis died a pauper despite being 'discovered ' as a painter by Ben Nicholson and his friends. There are several good books about him and often some of his work in the Tate here, but not necessarily. If you need to walk up from the Tate it makes a nice way of getting up the steep climb without taking the road. In summer however there are buses up from the beach.
