Description"This is the burial site of Katherine Bavington, who was buried here on 9th September 1670. The tomb is partly cut into the rock and has a stone-built vault. Inside the vault is a concrete covered coffin, with an inscription and a poem. Next to the tomb are some garden walls and three carved stone heads. It is unusual to find a tomb of this date outside a churchyard, but Katherine Babington was a dissenter. She had been excommunicated for trying to pull a vicar from his pulpit. This meant she was not allowed to be buried in the churchyard. Instead she was buried here, in the grounds of her house. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law."
