This picture was taken on 8th April when Abingdon Cemeteries were closed .
We passed the gate again yesterday and saw it was now open.
Between then and now central government guidance to local government has changed. The Local Government Secretary, Robert Jenrick, said on 18th April 2020 ‘And I’m also asking councils to keep open or indeed reopen cemeteries and graveyards. Not for people to congregate in. That must not happen. But for people to make that private visit.’
