Bisbrooke, St John's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
A more interesting feature is in the churchyard, where you will find a tombstone to Nathaniel Clarke (d. 1813). The tombstone features a carving illustrating a farm wagon drawn by four horses.
To one side is the wagoner, carrying a long whip and wearing a slouch hat, while in the background is a church tower and fencing. Farm tools are depicted in the corners.
While not remarkable in any sense, this 'Wagoner's Tombstone', as a framed article inside the church calls it, is interesting in that it depicts the deceased in his trade, rather than showing typical religious symbols.
