SARCOPHAGUS

Attached to the wall of the south transept, beneath the millennium window, is a medieval stone sarcophagus.

 

Popular legend describes this as a crusader's coffin, but it is more likely to be the last resting place of a rich parishioner.

 

It was found when the nave was relaid during the 19th century improvements to the church.
