|Stone slab, right hand side.
|set into the east wall of nave, on the outside, at Bedlington.
|Stone type: medium-grained, massive yellow sandstone.
|59.7 cm high (23.5''), 50.8 to 55.9 cm wide (20" to 22''), and built into the wall.
|Carved stone slab, set into the outside wall of the Church, dated to tenth century.
|There are two frontal figures carved on the slab, both cut off at the feet. Their shoulders touch and both have haloes with
straight sides and wedge-shaped faces.
|The figure on the right holds a rod in its left hand (the top of the rod has been broken off). Its right hand is held across
the dress with the first two fingers extended in blessing. The edges of this figure's drapery are less elaborately pleated
than on the other figure, but in the centre of the garment there is an intricate panel of V-shaped folds.
