Cwm Nash Cemetery, Vale of Glamorgan

Paul Huckfield, Arfordir Coastal Heritage project Co-ordinator and Rowena Hart, GGAT Projects, have been at Cwm Nash, Vale of Glamorgan this afternoon, filming with the BBC and ITV.  They have been talking about the cemetery located on the cliff top there and the human remains that have been exposed and on show since the storm of 5th of January.

Rowena does all the talking as Paul has man flu!

Human remains have been repeatedly exposed by erosion and recovered by GGAT over the last 20 years, the last being in 2012. Learn more.   The remains have been carbon dated and all date from the post-medieval period.

This latest discovery is mainly thanks to Mr Morgan for his swift action in recovering the remains before they were lost to the sea.

The Trust have a Ministry of Justice license to excavate the rest, and the landowner’s permission, and are seeking grant support from Cadw to enable us to do so.
