2/124 Chest tomb about 18 yards
south of the chancel of
the Church of St John the


Chest tomb. Dated 1630(?). Sandstone ashlar. Narrow with half-columns set
back at corners and also two at each side with frieze above. Between columns
are recessed round-headed panels. The slightly hipped capping is later and
probably re-used from another tomb. At the west end is a partly illegible
inscription within the panel. The date "1630" is inscribed in the spandrels.
An unusual early and boldly detailed chest tomb.
