  Directions To The Grave of John Knox
 
John Knox is buried in the St. Giles Cemetery, behind the St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland. As St. Giles is located on the Royal Mile/High Street in the old part of the city, it has been very crowded and built up over the years. Some years ago, the city needed parking spaces, and hence covered over the old cemetery with paving. Whether done unwittingly or not, it was obviously a poor judgment decision. Hence, the grave of the most important religious reformer in the history of Scotland is now denoted as parking space 23. It also has a bronze plaque with no writing on it. Photos of the grave are online.

the scoffolding was all over the church, making good
photos impossible
