Sixteen kneeling brass children

This fifteenth-century church stands in the grounds of Thornton House, which is now a school. It contains many wonderful treasures - including an outstanding brass with depictions of sixteen kneeling children and the fifteenth-century life-sized alabaster tomb figures of John Barton and his wife, as well as box pews, a two-decker pulpit and the squire's pew.
