The Graveyard
African Explorers

Derek and Jan Toomer from Santon Downham explored Namibia on a birdwatching-holiday in 2013. They were not the first visitors from Santon Downham to Southern Africa, another 19th century explorer features on one of the headstones in the graveyard for a local victorian explorer.
