Camp Church Yard
« on: September 25, 2018, 04:50:04 PM »

Does anyone know the name of the ruins that are on the trail just before Camp?  We were on the way to the Seaview B&B.   On the left side of the trail there were two falling down, small buildings.  Right after that was a ruined church yard.   There was a sign that said it was used for babies that died.  I think the buildings were from 1100 a.d.
I walked the trail in August 2018 and I would like to get more info on this place.   It is not mentioned in the trail descriptions.    Thank you!
