SY78SW CHURCH ROAD, Preston 873-1/3/466 (South side) Rooke monument approximately 3m north of the vestry, Church of St Andrew

GV II

Chest tomb. Earliest recorded date 1701, to Thomas Rooke (or Hooke). Portland stone. A heavy ledger width moulded edge on a chest with 2-panelled S side, plain N, and deep bolstered ends, all on a moulded base, partly sunk to the ground. The 2 panels are sunk under scalloped arches carried on 'Doric' pilasters with very wide caps, and containing good lettering in capitals to the inscriptions. The W end has a crude skull with flanking crossed bones, and the E end a worn carved angel, all in high relief. This is a well retained and characteristic example of a design used in the late C17 and early C18.
