Slaugham church and Matcham tomb

This is another poor quality photograph of St Mary's church at Slaugham taken in November 1903. On this occasion the name on the reverse is Master L. Cheall, about whom I have no information.
The picture is most unusual in that it appears to have been taken from the top of the bank quite close to Rock Cottage, not a view of the church many people have seen!
Just to the left of centre can be seen the Matcham tomb surrounded by iron railings which were removed many years ago, probably for the war effort. The tomb is famous for the Lord Nelson connection and more can be read on picture #595.
A clear image of the inscription on the tomb can be seen on picture #596.
