This photo from the Thorpe Thewles History Group shows a comparision betwen 1940 and 2007 and the rapid deterioration of the inscription.

The group are hoping to start a conservation project this year, so hopefully it will soon be on view again.

  1. We really need your support to help us to meet church requirements to survey and if possible move this ancient stone indoors so that it is permanently protected from the elements and so would appreciate comments eiither on this website or on Thorpe Thewles History Group website!

  2. We all have a duty of care over our history. Once people get involved it opens up new areas of thought and of interest to everyone. A great outcome.
