4/114 Row of 4 monuments in the
churchyard of the Church of
St Peter, immediately east of the
porch

GV II

Row of 4 recumbent medieval effigies. Limestone. Medieval. All
the figures are dressed in long robes, the three closest to the
porch are probably the tombs of women; that furthest from the
porch has shorter robes and no headdress suggestng the figure may
be that of a man. The hands and feet of this monument are missing.
The head and hands of the adjacent monument are missing. All four
effigies rest their feet on dogs. The detail of all four
monuments is generally eroded. These monuments were found during
the digging of foundations for the new nave and north aisle during
the late C19.
