15/119 Group of 5 Chest Tombs
about 10 to 25 metres
south west of Church of
St Mary
Group of 5 chest tombs. All late C17/early C18. Stone. A row of 3 almost ident-
ical chest tombs with panelled sides and wave-moulded corner pieces, probably
crude attemps at urn-shaped corner pieces, and moulded top slabs. A fourth ident-
ical chest with adjacent less ornate, monolithic and earlier chest, still with
moulded top slab, closer to the church. All inscriptions worn and chests too sunk
into ground to be legible.
