with a frieze of quatrefoils containing shields. On a ledge at
the top of the chest is an inscription. Set in the west wall of

pillow with ogee corners and mailed hands holding a heart.
Beneath is the matrix for a second now vanished shield shaped
panel. This early C14 brass to Richard de Boselyngthorpe is one
of the earliest military brasses in England.
