List of Natural Burial Grounds
Crossways Woodland Burials, Exeter, Devon
On the edge of Dartmoor with stunning views, easy to find and approximately 10 miles west of Exeter, this burial site is set on a family farm.
The emphasis is on enviromental measures with the long-term aim of becoming deciduous natural woodland.
The grass is mown only in the autumn, which gives a softer appearance but enables a larger diversity of wildlife than a more manicured site; birds, insects and small mammals are very much in evidence.
There is a wooden cabin that will provide shelter on the days when Dartmoor shows it’s more elemental side complete with a sedum roof and composting toilet.
With as few rules as possible the aim is to enable you to personalise to your own requirements.
