With outside temperatures no longer conducive to the baking of bread, I figured I should continue my graveyard adventures. Hoping to make multiple stops, I hied myself to Upton, Mass, a picturesque community in Southeastern Worcester County.
Unfortunately I arrived just as a rainstorm began so I had to dash from stone to stone, leading to some less-than-optimal photos. Sorry about that.
It is a rather lovely and peaceful spot, set just off of Westboro Road, a few yards north of where it intersects North Street. Parking is limited to a narrow strip off the road next to a few stones set to prevent further off-road driving. As for the stones, there are a few soul effigies, mostly from James New and a goodly number of (unmarked) field stones.
