What's The Angle?



Here's another gravestone that I came across today. This one dates from 1705. This particular graveyard is very small and surrounds St Nicholas's church, located near the bottom of Maid Marian Way. It's not surprising that the stone lies at an angle, as the road is one of the busiest in the city. I love the way they've used some old English words, as in "lieth" and the word 'also' spelt "alfo".
