This One's For Michaleen [Oct. 17th, 2011|09:58 am]

Who asked about the interior of the church at Chelmorton.  It shows an interior wall of the porch- which has been cobbled together (probably during the 19th c.) using all sorts of bits of carved stone- including medieval grave slabs. The incised stone on the right could well be Saxon.

Yes, many thanks. This is just the part I was reading about. It was stated that the bits of grave slabs preserved on the porch were quite old, some perhaps even of Saxon origin.

The porch is an antiquarian's delight. I don't know enough about Saxon art to be able to identify a piece with confidence.

I suspect you're correct and the specimen on the left right may indeed be Saxon. Googling up images of Saxon grave slabs, it looks like a good fit.
