On the south wall of the chancel is a memorial to Shute Barrington, b.1734 – d.1826
IN A VAULT BENEATH THIS STONE LIE THE BODIES OF THE [HON] &[R] REVEREND SHUTE BARRINGTON
LORD BISHOP OF DURHAM AND OF JANE HIS WIFE
This is a raised vault rather than a ledgerstone but as it is exposed to the elements in the now roofless nave and commemorates Shute Barrington who partly rebuilt the church in 1791 it is perhaps, worth recording.
Ref. TCCT guide 2006
