16/16 Headstone llm South
of S. Aisle of St.
Andrews Church


Headstone. Ashlar. 1740. Inscription illegible. Pair of engaged Ionic
columns support entablature and enclose raised and fielded rectangular
inscription tablet. Above entablature is moulded set-back segmental projection
in which a female figure with long hair reclines resting on a skull, carved
in high relief. Figure is probably neither a reference to St. Agnes nor an
effigy but an allusion to a young unmarried woman.
