Table Tomb Erosion
The former Roman settlement of Ribchester is home to St Wilfrid's Church, a Grade I listed building with an extensive churchyard bordering it on three sides. Difficult to photograph today with the sun low in the sky and casting long shadows. I don't remember seeing so many table tombs as there are at St Wilfrid's. Frost covered many of the headstones and bright green lichen proved a striking addition to many of them. More of that in a further post but, for now, here is the top of a table tomb that has started to erode . . .
