SK 30 27 Lost. It was drawn by Cutts about 1849 but recorded as lost by Collingwood in 1909. Large hogback fragment: Type XI. The top was broken away. There were three rows of Type 2b tegulae. perhaps with an incised line between each row. A plain moulding represented the eaves below which was scroll and pellet; the pellets were in clusters of two and three. The ends were either hipped or broken. (1)
In 1801/2, a hogback tombstone was discovered in the western part of the churchyard, but was then broken up and used as a door-step for the dairy at the parsonage, an act which was described as condemning the monument ‘by the more than Hun-like barbarity of a modern utilitarian, to a purpose as vile, as the act itself was wanton and sacrilegious’ (1854, 250). A sketch of the stone survives, however. (2)
