This is the grave of Sambo, a slave/cabin boy put ashore at Sunderland from a ship visiting Lancaster, the UK's fourth-largest slaving port in the 1700s.
It's smaller than I thought, in an isolated and unconsecrated spot several hundred metres from the nearest building. I knew there's a brass plaque, but the cross and 'shrine' were unexpected.
