ST 78 NE
4/111 Group of 9 Chest Tombs
to east and south-east

9 Chest tombs. Late C17th - early C19th. Ashlar with panelled sides and
cornice; some have 'lyre ends' and some with highly decorative carving;

The chest tombs form a good collection of classical and local tomb forms
and contribute greatly to the setting of the church.
