My Day Out - I have a request. I am making a bookwork about journeys around London (Zones 1 to 6) and I invite you to send me on a trip to a place that you know, or have memories of, or read about in a  book, heard in a song....Please send the name of the underground station (this is a tube map : http://ning.it/ZNTwaX )and I will visit the place by tube and spend one hour taking photos.  I will then create a bookwork of the place and send you a postcard....

Thanks xxjones - I will certainly visit Bunhill Fields Cemetry - in fact it is a place that I pass when I am teaching in the city!  I have never visited Blake's grave though.  Can you tell me what your real name is and where you come from so I can add it to my bookwork?  Thanks! Gandha, Islington, London, UK

Hi Gandha,

would you want to visit William Blake's grave at Bunhill Fields. He is buried at Bunhill Fields Burial Grounds for "nonconformists". There is a grave stone there, although the actual location is possibly still unmarked. Watch this short BBC report on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHzQsGpg8uo

There is another interesting clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJgE_is7QL8

Bunhill Fields Burial Grounds
38 City Rd London, Greater London EC1Y 1AU‎

The nearest tube station is Old Street, I think.

I used to live in London, but I have never been at that site.
