859-1/6/366 Mew and unidentified monuments
approx. 13m north of NW corner of
Two close-set monuments, C17 and C18. (i) Chest tomb. C18.
Limestone. Includes inscription to Thomas MEW (?) but without
date. Heavy flat ledger with cyma-mould edges on fielded
panels with drapes, and inset ends to quarter balusters,
chamfered base. Generally rather worn, but style is typical of
early to mid C18 in Cotswold memorials; (ii) Chest tomb. Mid
to late C17. Limestone, brick repairs. Heavy flat ledger slab
to chamfered edges, on plain panels, all to heavy chamfered
base. The end panels have deep incised lettering, but are not
clearly decipherable; the date 1733 can be made out. The long
sides of the monument have brick end panels, framing a
set-back central panel. The form of the monument is typical of
the C17, with its heavy and relatively plain components; it is
certainly earlier than 1733.
