north east corner of the nave is a late C13 recumbent effigy of a
knight, feet resting on a lion, head resting on a cushion
supported by angels. The figure wears chain mail, helmet and
surcoat with rowell spurs and the figure rests on a tomb chest
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
the nave is a tapering limestone tombstone with Lombardic
inscription round the edge. It retains a brass depicting a demi-
figure of a knight in chain mail and surcoat, head resting on a
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.
