Full Description

The cemetery lies at a considerable height over the modern beach levels and so the potential discovery of a shell midden here is of interest. However the cemetery is in use and extensively occupied with graves, either grassed, graves or gravel paths, so no evidence of a midden - HAW 4/2004
