Seven table tombs, mid and late C18 to Blackborn and Jenkinson families. Limestone.
One with shaped ends and inverted scroll brackets to corners. Bolection moulded and
raised and fielded panels to sides and a shallow round-headed niche to one end with a
weeper. Another is similar but rectangular and has the bolection moulded panels
divided by a panel of fruit and foliage. The corners have similar ornament and at the
end a panel with other emblems of mortality. A third tomb is probably late C18 or
early C19, and neoclassical in style.
