SO 8609 (part)
(south east side)
9/210 John Cook monument in the
churchyard c.14 m north of
St Peter's Chapel to the
Church of St Mary
Chest tomb. Late C17 or early C18, but inscription to John Cook, Clerk of this
Parish, 1830. Limestone. Thick top to plain chamfer edge, wide lyre ends, to
the east with cartouche and to west an angel with open book; north panel with
bold bolection mould and supporters, south has drapes and a poorly carved cherub
head. Some lettering, including 1830 inscription, but this is certainly a much
earlier monument, probably C17. Set to cyma base. A good example of the lyre
chest tomb of early date.
