Title

Nunnington Church - HLS05978

Description

Slide 9 - These old scraggy trees, set north and west round the churchyard, gives a weird haunted look to the place.

The church is of Norman date, mentioned in Doomsday and has undergone many alterations. Amongst other monuments in the interior of Nunington Church, that which excites most attention, is that of Peter de Leschy, because to it is attached the popular legend of the Dragon of Leschy Wood, whereby de Leschy met with his death, an event which happened so many centuries ago that they forgot to put the date on the tombstone.
