Listing Text

SO 8609 (part) (south east side)

9/240 Baker monument in the
churchyard c.22 m west of
west tower to the Church
of St Mary


Chest tomb, probably of c17, but now with two brass plates to Richard Baker
1820, and William Baker, 1836. Thick limestone top to cyma edge, carrying the
brass plates; plain chest without modelling or lettering, all on heavy, broad,
cyma base. The top plate is signed 'J Hamlett fecit'. Although now with C19
inscription, the heavy top and base slabs and plain chest presuppose a much
earlier date: the superimpostion of the plates also supports this. The two
Bakers were aged 69 and 84 respectively: many dated monuments in this church-
yard show similar longevity. Just to south of principal path.
