- Cosland Headstone approximately
25m north-west of West Tower of
Church of St Bartholomew


Small headstone. Dated 1717 in memory of Amy Cosland. Mudstone. Round-headed
upright slab approximately 200mm wide and approximately 450mm high. It is inscribed
in capital letters AMY COSLAND BURIED JULY THE 9 1717. At the top is a horizontal
line with a pair of semi-circles rising above and with a simple cross between. At
the bottom is a naive and stylised representation of a cherub with half of the date
on each side. The headstone was probably set in its present position in C19.
