Jennings Tomb

The large and splendid tomb seperates the Chancel from the North Chapel.  Commemorating Marmaduke and his son, Robert,
represented as troopers, with jack boots and jerkins.

The sides of the tomb are decorated with figures representing family mourners.

A thin coffered arch serves as a canopy and the family crest, surmounted by a robin, is supported by cherubs.

Chained to the railings, which are original, is a small and ancient strong box, now empty.
