There are some fairly unusual burial places in the world, but not many have this kind of history. This site is peaceful and sad at the same time, if you know what I mean.
At least this person has not been totally forgotten. That's something good, I think.
Manaton, Devon, England
Colloquially called Jay’s Grave this rather nondescript mound of grass has been baffling Devonians for years. Thought to be the resting place of a suicide victim of the late 1700s the grave situated within the eerie depths of Dartmoor has become a cult haunting spot for ghost-chasers. Due to the religion led ignominy towards ‘self-murder’ in the 18th century, Kitty Jay was denied a church plot in consecrated ground and instead was buried at crossroads so that her spirit would remain confused and never be able to find its way to the afterlife. Someone somewhere certainly has sympathy with Kitty because fresh flowers are regularly placed on the grave and despite numerous investigations, paranormal and otherwise, no one has ever come claimed responsibly for the frequent floral tributes.
See what I mean about this final resting place being both peaceful and sad at the same time?
Let's brighten things up just a bit by having our coffee on the patio. It's kinda nice out this morning!
