SX 79 SE CHERITON BISHOP CHERITON BISHOP

10/35 Chest tomb approx. 8m south of porch of Church of St Mary the Virgin

GV II

Chest tomb. Probably late C17th. Granite ashlar. Rectangular plan with moulded plinth and soffit-moulded lid. The lid has weathered so much as to make the legend illegible but a recessed shield, containing bas-relief arms can be made out below the legend. The long sides are plain but both ends have square recessed panels with bas-relief carving. The east panel has a diagonal cross with arrow-head ends over a roundel with dimpled top and a small heart above and small roundel below. The west panel has an oval with simple facial features alongside another diagonal cross with arrow-head ends, both over scrolls.
