Listing Text


873-1/3/468 (South side)
Two monuments approx. 1.5m south of
south aisle door to Church of St


2 headstones. Early C18. Portland stone. That nearest the door
is to Mary, wife of John Clapcott. It is unusually thick, to a
square head and chamfered back; partly buried, but the
extended side visible in the gutter adjacent to the church.
The inscription panel is sunk, under a scalloped arch carried
on classical capitals. A worn and naive carved head. The
second memorial is not legible, but is probably early to mid
C18 in date. It is a thick slab, with sunk panel and shaped
top to central scroll head.
