The Grave’s a fine and private place: Exploring History in Hastings

"the grave's a fine and private place…" exploring Hastings Cemetery

Why not rest, relax and reflect awhile, sitting on the OHPS / FoHC seat, located on EL, and take in the magnificent view.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
