Chest tomb at approx 25m south east
of All Hallows Church of Saint Kea
Chest tomb. Early C19. To Julia Anna -----. White limestone with granite outer
wall, originally with iron railings. Rectangular-on-plan. Plinth, fielded panelled
sides, clasping fluted corner pilasters and reverse stepped lid with incised,
difficult to decipher inscription.
The present church, of 1896, replaces a church of 1802 designed by James Wyatt, and
the churchyard dates from then. Very few tomb monuments survive at the earlier
church at Old Kea; so the earlier C19 churchyard monuments in this churchyard, though
modest architecturally, are historically important for this parish.
