Crusader Effigy

 
 
 
 


The bodies of the Knight and his Lady are buried in the crypt beneath the altar. We are not quite sure which Delaval he is. He would most likely have been part of an tomb chest which stood where the altar is now. They were separated and have been placed in a number of different spots around the church before arriving where they are now. They are badly damaged and worn, and retain no traces of the gesso and bright colours with which they must once have been enriched.
