Not a great participant in group events, but after a couple of hours there this morning I should put in a word for Abney Park as a destination for lovers of the funereal and decrepit.

Spectacularly overgrown - with a derelict chapel in the centre (allegedly dangerous condition - usually kept locked - but access is "negotiable").

Website (http://www.abney-park.org.uk).

Most notable resident seems to be William Booth of the Salvation Army.

Always personally on the lookout for derelict locations - would very much like to know if anyone has the secret of accessing Millenium Mills in Docklands.

I take you've seen this site?

That sounds rather wonderful, these old cemeteries have so much to offer because they're packed full of wildlife as well as the memorials.
