Return to the front page

The church of St Bartholomew is grade I listed . It was built between 1180–90 in both Norman and in Early English styles. It consists of a continuous chancel and nave and a 13th Century detached tower, thought to be intended for defence against the Welsh.

The carved feet, including toenails, were an unusual feature of this memorial.

Harriet Croose was the "last survivor of the family of George and Mary Croose".

Aged 103.

Aged 104.

Can you see the mistake in this memorial to a Chimneysweep?

" ... buried close to the entrance to this seat".

John Guest served under both Wellington and Nelson and received "several severe wounds".

Francis Tuke was " .. killed whilst carrying water to his men in the trenches ...".

The family history of the Bulmer family makes for a sad read!.

Despite the old fashioned language used this epitaph is well worth reading.

Three siblings, Thomas, Richard and Jane Powell, died within just over 4 months.

A very sombre epitaph was all that that left on an otherwise badly damaged gravestone.

Claire Christine Nicholson and Martin Piers Nicholson - Ticklerton (Shropshire) and Daventry (Northhamptonshire), United Kingdom.
