788/22/10083 Anonymous sarcophagus approx. 7m east of St George's Rectory


Anonymous sarcophagus, c.1740, grey veined marble. Sarcophagus supported at corners on ball and claw feet with acanthus decoration. Coved cover with gadrooning to edge, armorial cartouches to sides and a feathered coronet on the south end. Located opposite the rectory (qv) and possibly in memory of an early rector of the church. A highly unusual design executed in very lavish marble.
