Listing Text

LYDNEY CHURCH ROAD
SO 60 SW
(east side)
7/100 UNIDENTIFIED monument
in the churchyard
c12m north of nave
north wall of the
Church of St Mary
- II*
Chest tomb. C17. Sandstone. Thick flat top slab with moulded edge over decorated
pulvinated frieze, high relief carved ends with rosette and drapes, sunk
inscription panels, the base sunk at the time of survey, September 1983. The
south facing panel is badly worn; that to north has some good C17 incised
lettering, but neither name nor date now decipherable. This is an important
survival, although worn because of the nature of the forest sandstone.
