Inside St Bartholomew's Church, Much Marcle

Recent Photograph of Inside St Bartholomew's Church (Much Marcle)

Three premier monuments are inside St Bartholomew's Church, including perhaps one of the most beautiful medieval effigies in England. The latter is to Blanche Mortimer, Lady Grandison. In the north chapel, two husbands and wives, the earlier of c1400 to an unknown couple - two tiny puppies pull at the folds of her robe, and his feet sit on a fabulous lion who was never originally planned to be looking at the wall which sugggests this tomb may have been elsewhere in the church. Centre stage however is an excellent tomb chest with effigies of Sir John Kyrle and his Wife.
