Long Description:
"beautiful Renaissance freestone monument to Rowland Durant (d. 1588) is now on the north wall of the north aisle, opposite the entrance: its chief motive is a large coat-of-arms with helm and mantling, and the entablature is supported by Ionic pilasters.

Before 1875 the monument was on the east wall of the north aisle, partly hidden by a monument to Edmund Munton, 1831. The Munton tomb was restored to its original position in the churchyard in 1875, and the Durant monument placed where it now is."
