Somerset Curiosity

A walk through a Somerset graveyard led to the discovery of this menacing looking item of grave architecture. Most of the surface of the tomb had eroded away since it was first constructed some 200 years before. Such adornments on tombs and headstones on modern graves are rare.

  1. There is a graveyard in scotland called West Kirk and it is full of these tombstones. Perhaps it was a fashion?
