To reach the old cemetery in Battle Harbor, you must
follow the wooden boardwalk from the wharf to the church. Behind the church, take
the small trail leading to the ocean. After a walk of about 1000 feet you will
see the cemetery between two rocky cliffs.
Battle Harbour is
located on Battle Harbour Island 8 km off Mary's Harbour. To reach Battle Harbour,
you must follow the road 510 east from St-Barbe/Blanc-Sablon ferry on about 200
km to Mary's Harbour then take a local ferry which will bring you to the village.
Harbour had been an important community of english fisherman for more than 200
years. The few people that were still living there were forced to move by NewFoundland
Government to Mary's Harbour. Recently, the Canadian Federal Government has made
Battle Harbour an important historic site to let us remember the important role
of this place in the development of Labrador.
