8/90 Taylor Coldridge chest tomb
- approximately 2.5 metres north-
west of Church All Saints
Chest tomb. Dated 1871 in memory of Samuel Taylor Coldridge (sic), signed by
Collings of Exmouth. Limestone with granite base. Gothic style chest tomb. The
lid has a very low-pitched ridge, moulded edges and coved cornice below enriched
with four leaf decoration and rosettes. The moulded plinth follows round the angle
buttresses which have weathered offsets. There is one panel each end and two each
side, the pairs separated by a similar buttress. Each panel is sunken and contains
a 4-centred arch with cinquefoil head and trefoils in the spandrels. Most of the
panels are inscribed, all Roman serif upper and lower case lettering. The west end
records the death of Samual Taylor Coldridge (sic) in 1871, the southern panels
record the deaths of John and Elizabeth Coldridge in 1851. The tomb sits on a
granite platform which has a series of sockets indicating that the tomb was once
enclosed by iron railings.
