Stop by and visit the British cemetary. Here are buried the remains of unidentified British soldiers that washed ashore here during WW II in 1942. They were soldiers aboard the HMS Bedfordshire that was torpedoed on May 11, 1942. Their bodies washed ashore shortly after and residents here wanted to give them a proper burial. They rest in the shade of old oak trees just down the street from NC 12 on (fittingly) British Cemetery Rd.
