All Saints Church, Stamford

Some pics from yet another of the wonderfully preserved churches in this Georgian town. It’s still in use and holds concerts. This is possibly the best selection of monuments I’ve seen in a graveyard. Mostly 17th century, lots of cherubs, seems to be a local thing, also in nearby Peterborough.

Some memorials on the external walls, so seems to have been a crowded churchyard.

Tower and spire

Some odd niches and gargoyles on outside walls

A crowded family tomb


Inside the organ takes precedence over a baroque memorial


Font and St Peter

Some lovely benchends of the evangelists: Matthew a divine man, Mark a winged lion, Luke a winged ox and John the Eagle

The base of a cross. War memorial or for preaching?
