There are lots of old gravestones in the churches around here, but this one caught my eye: it's rair to find one this old that's as well done as this and still so "crisp" and well preserved.

Regards, John.

Is that tombstone sheltered somehow? You're right - it's unusual to find one that hasn't been worn down by rain, wind, etc. The detail is remarkable and exquisite.

Not as such no, but it has been moved so it's right in front of the church building, and it is a reasonably sheltered location, although the church is right on the edge of Dartmoor which isn't known for it's good weather!
