Tomb of William Chivers, Lee Terrace, St Margaret's Old Churchyard SE13 - Lewisham

Coade stone chest tomb from the late C18. The loss of the ledger slab has allowed a tree to take root inside the structure and to grow from its top. The tomb is in need of attention to avoid serious structural damage. A condition survey has been prepared, with funding from Historic England, and funding for repair and restoration works has been secured through a Section 106 agreement.
