Great Abington: St Mary - monument to Sir William Halton
Great Abington: St Mary - monument to Sir William Halton
"Standing wall monument. He rests stiffly on his elbow, hand on cheek. His sword [blade] is of iron. Inscription above and flanking scrolls in their detail typical 1640, i.e. no longer Jacobean in style" (Nikolaus Pevsner). The inscription reads: "The memorial of the just is blessed. Here under this monument lyeth interred the body of Sr William Halton knight who in faith and much patience changed his life for a better on the 20th of Novemb: in the yeare of Our Lord 1639 being nere upon the age of 70 yeares. Mors Christi mihi vita."

Pevsner also observed that "The [church] interior is characterised by the exposed and whitewashed rubble of all walls, a C20 effect, blatantly incorrect, but appealing to our idea of the robust and unsophisticated Middle Ages."
