SX 39 NW CLAWTON CHURCHTOWN
2/20 Johns headstone about 20m south of
the tower of the Church of
Headstone. Early C19. Slate. Rectangular headstone commemorating Joseph Johns,
died 1813. Scratch mouldings round the border and forming a round-headed arch with
rustic trumpeting angels in the spandrels. A 3 stanza verse below the inscription
includes the graphic lines "In pain and sickness long I lay/My flesh and lungs
consumed away/Once like a flowerI did bloom/But now lie mouldred in this tomb/".
A fine example of local slate-cutting with a personal verse.
