Tong, St Bartholomew, Shropshire, ***

“Tong’s masterpiece is the tomb of Richard (d.1517) and his wife Benedicta of Ludlow. The historian of medieval alabaster, Arthur Garner, gives this tomb his palm: ‘perhaps the finest and most imposting of all the alabaster knights that have come down to us.’”
