(North side)
3/102 3 tombstones in
- churchyard 12m to
North of church tower


3 tombstones:- ...... Wells 1760, John Wells of St. Margaret Gent 1740,
Thomas Meadows 1748. White freestone. A little more than one metre tall,
the first two are of similar pattern with an ornate baroque carved panel
topping the inscribed plain slab. Particularly fine letter-cutting to
John Wells' slab. This has overlapping assymetrical winged cherubs'
heads looking inwards above acanthus sprays within a vigorously carved
frame of scrolls and counter-scrolls. The 1760 slab is similar but the 2
cherubs' heads are symmetrical and facing outwards. The Meadows slab is
simpler with a narrow carved panel at the head. This has a cherub's head
in a lunette with scrolls'to each end.
