Saw this cemetery from a tour. The slate stones that are in the photo for the site are in excellent condition. The cemetery is smaller than I expected, but has a lot of very old graves. Interesting to see stones from that era!
A small original cemetery with burials going back to the early 1600s. Accessible and interesting. The witches that were executed were not allowed to be buried here. They were dumped in a witches put although relatives and friends removed them by 1671.
