An ancient stone coffin in the churchyard of St Catherine, Wyville.

"The current St Catherine was built in 1857 by George Gregory (who also oversaw Hungerton Hall and whose nephew built Harlaxton Manor). However there had been an earlier St Catherine, situated quarter of a mile across the valley where the Sycamore farm buildings now are. We don’t know much about the old St Catherine, other than there was a significant graveyard (coffins and skeletal remains have been found), and that there are stories of an attached leper hospital run by the Order of Saint Lazarus."
