|Saint Margaret's Church|
This is a truly magnificent building and if it were anywhere else other than Kings Lane it would be much visited, publicised and developed. As it is, the cemetery and Church is situated in the ancient quarter of the town and is slightly overlooked by visitors in favour of the High Street.
The majority of the monuments at St Margarets are upright and have been replaced in this form although there are two or more chest tombs which remain and which are interesting. Unusually, St Margarets has removed some monuments in favour of providing vehicular access to the properties formed from the ruins of St Margarets Priory and this is fairly atypical. I have not come across another cemetery where vehicular access has been formed in such a way and one may only imagine that the parish needed a faculty from the diocesan authorities to create this novelty.
