GV
II*
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.
