Description

Two stone effigies of knights set upright against the north side of a garden wall. The left hand effigy is of early 14th century date, with the figure of S-shaped form, in chain mail with surcoat, sword and shield. His legs are crossed and behind them is a scene of a stag chased by two hounds with a third biting his shield. The right hand effigy is of late 13th century date, the figure in chain mail with surcoat, long sword and shield. His hands are folded in prayer and his legs are crossed. The effigies once covered the graves of important local men buried at Coverham Abbey.
