Corinthian spirit haunts Brockley

The Friends of Brockley and Ladywell Cemetary have unearthed (not literally) a bona fide England football international buried in SE4, albeit one from the days when you could put 6 past Scotland in the morning, sink a few at the Kings Arms and then head off to notch up a century against a Combined Colonies XI. Click here to read the story of Harry Albermarle Swepstone, who not only played for the Corinthians but came up with the famous club's name.

The next guided tour of the Cemetery is on June 16th, from 6pm. Click here for details.
