Full Description

The churchyard at the Church of All Saints is depicted on the 2nd edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey County Series map. It likely dates to at least the medieval period, when the church it serves was built (see PRN 51367). {1} A small, heavily weathered stone statue was found adjacent to the churchyard wall at some point in the 1860s, by a man digging in his garden. The statue was carved from local limestone, and represented a slightly bowed female figure, possibly a 'weeper' or saint or similar figure from a screen or reredox niche. It may have come from the church and was possibly turned out during the reformation. If this is the case, the weathering suggests that it lay unprotected on the surface for some time. Alternatively, it may have always been on the exterior of the church. {2}
