4/111 Group of 9 Chest Tombs
to east and south-east
of Chancel of the Church of
St Mary the Virgin
9 Chest tombs. Late C17th - early C19th. Ashlar with panelled sides and
cornice; some have 'lyre ends' and some with highly decorative carving;
particularly in south-east of the group. John Bence, 1674 (struck by lightening).
The chest tombs form a good collection of classical and local tomb forms
and contribute greatly to the setting of the church.
