5/133 Grimston Memorial and
- Railed Enclosure about
25m E of Church of
Chest tomb. Rt Hon Lady Anne Grimston of Gorhambury, d.1717. Limestone
ashlar. Moulded plinth and capping. Gadrooned corner balusters. Fielded
panelled sides. Inscription on one long side. Arms and skull and cross
bones in relief on short sides. Inscribed capping. Spear headed railed
enclosure. Outer railings were erected in 1870 because of the number of
visitors to this tomb who came to see the trees growing out of the S
side of the tomb which were reputed to owe their existence to the last
and allegedly blasphemous words of Lady Grimston. (East Herts
Archaeological Society Transactions, vol.2 pt.2, 1903, p.165).
