Long Description:
Mosaic tiles inlaid into the stone reredos of St Botolph and St John The Baptist's church, Croxton Kerrial.

A simple pattern, with the form of a cross, and the letters INRI (Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum), IHS (Jesus Hominum Salvator), and XP (Chi Rho). Behind each of the figures of saints (including a horned Moses) there is also (although obscured) a mosaic pattern.

The present chancel was rebuilt when the three-panelled east window was inserted, which is now hidden by the stone reredos from 1873.
