14/66 Langdon and Heathfield chest tombs
- about 3 metres north west of east
end of aisle of St Michael and
All Angels

Pair of chest tombs. Langdon chest tomb early C19, Heathfield probably late C19.
Stone. The Langdon chest tomb, to the south, is a rectangular chest with a plinth
and oversailing lid. The earliest legible inscription commemorates Mary Langdon,
died 1829 ; railings missing. 1 metre to the north a medieval-style coped chest with
a plinth and ornamental cross carved in relief on the lid has inscriptions on the
side. The earliest commemorates Thomas Heathfield, died 1847 but the style suggests
a more likely date of the 1870s, inscription on south side commemorates John Edwards,
died 1874. Railings missing.
