Image of the feature "III. Exterior Features: 3. Exterior Decoration: d. Miscellaneous: Two reset fragments below guttering of N aisle." at Calverley.
by John McElheran.
Both fragmentary slabs have an equal-armed cross on the upper part. One cross is plain and in a ring; the other cross is decorated with centripetal Vs and has a small dome in each quadrant. (See Ryder 1991, 17, nos. 2, 3). The slab with the plain cross is thought to be 11thc. or 12thc. (Ryder no. 2); the slab with the cross and domes in the quadrants is probably early to mid-12thc. (Ryder no. 3).
The dimensions of the slabs have been converted from measurements in inches given in the church's leaflet.
|The slab with domes between the arms||0.355 x 0.508m|
|The slab with the plain cross||0.305m x 0.46m|
