Critchlow Monument, Sheen, Staffordshire Moorlands - Peak District (NP)

Chest tomb and railings to the Critchlow family, c1853 with large aedicular Gothic stone chest and spike headed wrought iron railing surround. The north face of the tomb has suffered two fragment losses to the blind arcading panels at the west and east end. The surrounding railings on all four sides have deteriorated where they fix into the stone base, in some cases to a point of complete loss, potentially jeopardising the long term stability of the monument. Historic England has contacted the churchwardens to discuss possible repairs.
