To reach the cemetery from Richmond take route 116 to Danville. At the first light, turn right onto Daniel Johnson Street. At the center of town, turn right onto Carmel Street. The cemetery is a short distance on your right.

Notes: This is a huge, sprawling cemetery sloping down from the road to the valley below. The main gate is usually open all summer and one can drive in and down the paved hill and park below where it is level.

This active cemetery dates from the early 1800s and is the final resting place of many of the first settlers of Shipton. It is not the easiest cemetery to get about in, due to it's location on the side of a hill. It is well kept and has many mature shrubs, trees and a mausoleum. Special thanks to Russell Saffin who also read this cemetery and provided useful additional information and corrections.

Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery making several visits in September and October of 2006.
