Three chest tombs located in the north aisle of the east church at Llantwit Major. The tombs comprise;
A 16th century effigy of Joan Hopkins, wife of Richard Hopkins, estate official, and their child. The romb is particularly interesting in that it features an insular design on the woman’s clothes, clearly imitating the celtic crosses located in the church.
A 14th century effigy, the inscription of which reads WILLIAM DE RAG… [or possibly DE REIG…] … SHAM … GYT ICI DEU DE SA ALME EYT MERCI. AMEN
A 12th century chest tomb recut with a 13th century priest’s head, the inscription of which reads NE PETRA CALCETUR QUE SUBIACET ISTA TUETUR (Let not the stone be trodden on; let her who lies beneath be protected).
