My theme this week is the magnificent tomb of Sir Ralph Grey, in the Church of St Peter at Chillingham, following on from last week’s Five Windows.
The magnificent alabaster figures of Sir Ralph Grey and his wife Elizabeth FitzHugh lie on a beautifully carved sandstone table. Although the centuries are taking their toll, there are many wonderful carvings still to be seen. Mrs H spent the afternoon photographing every single one, which I thought I’d mention just in case anyone ever needs a photographic record of the whole tomb.
