approximately 3 metres
south of east end of
chancel of Church of St
Two panelled chest tombs. Early C18. Ashlar sandstone. The chest tombs
are next to one another and lie parallel. They are of matching design, with
chamfered bases, fielded panels to the ends, and 2 to the sides, with lids
moulded with a torus and scotia section around the edge. The lids are
inscribed, but the lettering is badly worn; each tomb seems to commemorate a
John Croft, the deceased of the more southerly tomb may have died in 1729.
