Chest tomb. Late C17 or C18. Hamstone. Chest tomb is rectangular in plan on a

sides have rectangular panels with bead-moulded surrounds, 2 on the long sides and 1
each end. The west end panel and the western panel on the south side are both

so worn as to illegible in all but perfect lighting conditions. On the south side
