John Cobb, Gent on the north side on a fielded inscription panel
within a border with carved foliate decoration. Similar fielded
panel on the south side. Circular panel at the west end with a
raised margin and gadrooning at the base. Thick capping with a
moulded margin. Egg and dart continued around all sides of the
tomb below the capping.
Chest tomb c2.5m to south of the latter. Early-mid C18. Partially
legible inscription on the south side with a sunken inscription
panel with panels of raised strapwork either side. Similar raised

Chest tomb c2.5m to south. Early C17 with deeply incised
inscriptions on the north side and at the west end. The south
side appears to bear some raised decoration but possibly not an

All three tombs were largely covered in ivy and may have further
inscriptions not apparent at the time of the resurvey (April 1986).
