Group of monuments. Three table tombs adjoining the tower, to members of the Bond
family - dated 1835, 1821 and 1823 - the first in Gothic, the others in classical
style. One similar classical style table tomb, south of these, to Leonora Bullen,
dated 1836. Between this and the first group, two raised "coffin lid" monuments to
members of the Bond family, dated 1842 and 1844. East of these, five stone coffin
lids, one dated 1795 - others undated - may be medieval (RCHM). A good group.
