Is this Britain’s most depressing playground? Children play on a metal slide just meters from a CEMETERY

A PLAYGROUND with a graveyard at the end of a slide has been branded Britain’s most depressing park.

St. Mary’s churchyard is a few yards from the children’s playgrounds and has at least ten tombstones next to the equipment.

The park and cemetery at Rotherhithe, south-east Londonis also next to the church, surrounded by trees and waterfront apartments.

Mom Vanessa Hammick, 39, tells My London: “This is the kind of playground you would use in an emergency.

“We always think it’s funny. My husband says you are born and then you die. I like it a lot. I feel affection for it.”

Paul Jones joked, “If you break your neck on the slide, they don’t have to take you very far.

Pensioner Roger Squires, 82, added: “Of course the headstones are there but the youngsters in the area have a place to play.

“I don’t think the kids think anything of it. My feeling is that it uses the space well.”

And mum Saskia Dykstra said her son wouldn’t “get it” in relation to the graves, adding: “We’re talking about death and funerals.

“He actually told me I saw this old guy on the subway. I said he’s going to hit the ground.”
