Effigies, The Church of All Saints, Nunney
Cosily rearranged in St Katharine's Chapel are the tombs of the Lords of the Manor. The effigy of a knight on the window sill is thought to be that of Sir John de la Mare, builder of the castle. He died in 1383. The Elizabethan couple, dressed to the nines to meet their maker, are Richard Prater and his wife. He bought the manor in 1577. The most interesting tomb is that of Sir John Paulet, who died in 1437, and his wife Constance. He wears full armour, his surcoat emblazoned with the De la Mare lions. Lady Paulet wears her hair long like an unmarried woman.
