Going . . . going . . .

Pioneer gravestones were moved to the grounds of Guildford Grammar School when roadworks disturbed an old graveyard. They are "on display", even though you have to walk past a No Entry sign to get to them.

They lay flat to the ground, unprotected from the elements, slowly deteriorating. Several have eroded to the point their inscriptions are indecipherable.

Here is one of the better preserved examples (1867).

. . . and below . . . gone! Lost beyond repair.

I'm sure the Guildford community can do better . . .
