I've been working with the Natural Death Centre in Tywford and they have set me on the trail of natural burial sites. This was the most peaceful place i have ever been, despite the odd car. It is not an obvious place, i parked up on the side of the road where the satnav told me to but took me a good 10 minutes to notice the trees planted over the graves. There are no conventional grave stones to be seen and most are just marked my a little stone plaque with their name's and date of death and on some a small message. In some cases there was just some old flowers and the unearthed dirt to give away a grave.
Despite the care that doesn't seem to go into maintaining the sites you never get the impression of neglect. I felt pretty comfortable there if I'm honest. There was only one thing that i found strange and that was the holes themselves where not big enough to fit a body in that i could see. I hope to meet the people who run the site to get a better look at the goings on.
