Escourt Chapel, Shipton Moyne (Canopied Tomb)

Recent Photograph of Escourt Chapel (Canopied Tomb) (Shipton Moyne)

Also surviving from the earlier church is the south transeptal Escourt family chapel. It contains a large painted canopied tomb with recumbent effigies and panels with children, looking very impressive as an ensemble but with rather rustic carving and decoration. There are other good monuments from the 18th century and earlier 19th century too.
