We found this cemetery yesterday while driving along the south coast. To get here we left the highway and took a gravel road to the coast. The cemetery is on a steep bluff, high above the sea. Immediately after the cemetery there was a closed gate across the road. There was no sign on the cemetery gate and we guessed it was private so Nigel took this photo from the roadside. We had no idea at all that we would find this, we were simply taking a random road and “exploring”. It felt a very special place.
