Ode to a Steak and Kidney Pudding

That is not dead which can eternal lie.
And with strange aeons even death may die

- Abdul Alhazred

We hope you wrote the recipe down, because the steak and kidney pudding gravestone has gone from Harefield Road.

The removal men visited recently and took with them one of Brockley's most curious fixtures - a gravestone in someone's front garden, semi-hidden behind bamboo, with a recipe for steak and kidney pudding engraved on it.

We wouldn't have chosen it for our front garden, but we will miss it greatly.
