a prop de New Ground, Saint Helena (Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha)

A saint Helena Postbox walk.

When slavery was abolished British Navy ships based at Saint Helena would intercept slave ships and bring the slaves to Lemon Valley which was used as a quarantine camp to ensure the newly released slaves were of sound health before mingling with the Island population.

It is possible to book (in advance) a boat collect you from Lemon Valley Bay and transport you back to Jamestown so you don't have to slog back up the valley.
Plenty of parking at this location.
Keep you eyes peeled shortly after starting this walk to spot Friar's Rock.
Only a few cottages still remain standing, albeit without roofs, and many are being swamped by the vegetation.
Every valley on Saint Helena had fortifications to prevent invasion which include a "curtain wall" stretching from one side of the valley to the other.
There a good view of the cliffs along the coast towards James Bay from here.
