Full description

Department of Environment, 1986, Zeal Monachorum, 74 (List of Blds of Arch or Historic Interest). SDV43775.

Memorial stone approximately 8 meters south of aisle of church of St Peter parish church in Zeal Monachorum. Memorial stone marking the position of the human bones removed from inside the church in 1913. The stone was itself dug up in 1913 and may be an Anglo-Saxon altar stone. Granite. A massive upright slab now standing approximately 1.5 metres high but is actually approximately 3.5 metres long. It is roughly finished and some indentations may be interpreted as crosses. There are said to be five crosses altogether which are thought by some to represent the 5 wounds of Christ.
