Bishop Auckland Pyramid

This pyramid is in the Parkland around Bishops Castle. Not many other than the locals know it exists. It was the burial ground of a local Taxi Driver in the 1930's He was called Toot-and-come-oot.
( "oot" is local dialect for out )

I have also been re-editing my marsh shot after some advice from Stewart,please let me know what you think.
