NY4526 : Dacre churchyard

taken 11 years ago, near to Dacre, Cumbria, Great Britain

Dacre churchyard
Dacre churchyard
The four corners of the original churchyard (smaller than the present one) are marked by four medieval stone bears. They were studied by Chancellor Furguson in 1890, and he believed that they depict a legendary tale, which can be summarised by: bear sleeping, bear attacked by wild cat, bear shakes off cat, bear eats cat. The bear in this photo is the second in the sequence, but the cat has been worn away and we just see the bear looking over its shoulder.
