More about this scene

In the background is the ruined tower of the chantry church founded in 1327 by Sir Guy de Bryan, one of the first Knights of the Garter. St James (right) was dedicated by Bishop Stapledon in 1318, and an altar slab stone found recently is thought to be the very stone involved in that dedication.
