New signs at Kettleby Cemetery

Two new signs have appeared at the Kettleby Cemetery recently.   The larger of the two (near the main entrance) warns that the driveway is not maintained January 1 to March 31.   It advises using the driveway at your own risk or parking at the bottom and walking up.   The driveway is uphill from bottom to top.   For the adventurous, or anyone with a 4-wheel drive vehicle, the cemetery driveway can be regarded as one of the better local, winter,  auto hill-climbs in the area, especially when it is ice-covered.   Once starting up, the way is narrow, with no turning around.   Backing down is definitely not for the faint-of-heart.   At the top of the cemetery, the driveway forms a large loop and one heads back down the same way you went up.   In winter, pay your respects at the funeral home and visit the cemetery in the spring.   You have been warned.   Many have learned the hard way.   The second sign, by the way, is about halfway up the hill and concerns much more mundane matters regarding cemetery rules.   If you're on ice, don't stop to read it!
Please comment if you wish.

  1. Interesting. Is the lot full? Do they not bury anybody during winter time?
