16/128 Group of 4
medieval grave
slabs 7 metres
south of vestry
of Church of
St. Michael
GV II*

Medieval grave slabs, probably C13. Sandstone. From north to south:

i) Slab with chamfered edges and incised pair of shears.
ii) Worn semi-coped slab.
iii) Plain slab with roll mouldings at angles of broad marginal chamfer,
broken in two.
iv) Similar unbroken slab.

These slabs may well be in situ; if so they form a group unique in the county.
Nos ii, iii and iv are similar to slabs in the Cathedral Yard at Durham.
