Notes: 

A spandrel from a fireplace which has been reused, firstly as a gravestone, and later as a piece of paving. It probably comes from a 16th/17th century fireplace, was reused as a gravestone in the 18th and as a piece of paving in the 19th century. The lower edge of the stone is chamfered. The inscription is cut in low false relief with capitals being conjoined. See also No. 75 for a further reused fireplace fragment.
