Tyne and Wear HER(415): Monkwearmouth Church, Roman stone - Details
Monkwearmouth Church, Roman stone
Roman stone in the north wall of the west porch of the church, measuring 12 inches by 6 inches, placed about one foot above the ground (like HER no. 414). The ornament upon it is of crude interlaced work, apparently hacked out with a pick. A stone with similar crude decoration is in the vestry of the church.
