The ossuary in the crypt of St Leonard‘s Church is one of only two in England (the other being in Rothwell, Northants) and contains 2,000 human skulls, 8,000 thighbones, a few jaw bones and various other artefacts. The skull and thighbones were usually kept as it was believed that it would ensure physical resurrection.
