Full Description

An Anglo-Saxon sculptural grave slab had been re-used in the building of the Church of St Andrew at Miningsby. The stone had formerly been used as a threshold stone, but was moved to the north wall of the chancel during the rebuilding of the church in 1878. The face of the slab had been carved with a figure-of-eight knotwork pattern, although the beading at one end had been worn or broken off. The slab was moved to the City and County Museum after the Church was demolished in 1981. {1}{2}{3}{4}{5}
