Possible site of an early Christian Graveyard. The association of St. Heligan, a British name linked with St. Nectan, together with the likely original existance of an oval enclosure at St. Heligan's Chapel, suggests that there may have been an early Christian graveyard at South Hole. The enclosure has been encroached upon over the centuries but is clearer on the Hartland Tithe Map of 1844.
