Notes about this historic site

1 A stone coffin for a child, dug up in Ufton churchyard. This was made of local sandstone, 1m long and 0.33m wide. The exterior was roughly formed, somewhat D-shaped, but with a carefully-made sinking tapering to the feet and shaped at the shoulders and head in the same way as a full-sized stone coffin. The length from head to foot is 53 cm, the depth 18 cm. There is a space for the head and a hole in the bottom, as usual in stone coffins.
