The harsh Denniston plateau - there was no cemetery here as the ground was too rocky - bodies were buried at Waimangaroa.

Take care out there
Dear Kathy and Dave Sounds and looks absolutely wonderful. Mum and Dad are heading home from Blenheim today if you are still in the area - 28 Eastons Road, Westport. And you know that I wrote my Masters thesis on the evolution of the coalmining community of Denniston 1880-1910... Love from Elizabeth
