NEWBOLD ASTBURY C.P. THE GREEN
SJ 86 SW
4/55 Canopied Tomb of a
member of the Venables
Family in Churchyard of
St.Mary at NGR SJ 84644 61570
Graveyard tomb, originally within the church. Late C13. Yellow
sandstone ashlar. Canopied tomb. Diagonal buttresses to the
corners. Moulded plinth with a band of quatrefoil tracery. Moulded
top to the slab which has two heavily effaced figures, one male and
one female, their hands clasped in prayer. The canopy has a shallow
arch with foiled outline and C17 crocketed pinnacles above. The outer
faces of the end walls have blind tracery with mouchettes and to the
inner side above the figures' heads a C16 inscription claiming the
tomb as that of a Brereton. It is more likely to be of a member of
the Venables family. The crocketed pinnacles to the top appear to be
of C17 date.
