Memorial tablet, Tetcott Church
Memorial tablet, Tetcott Church
A rather striking egg-shaped relief on the wall of SX3396 : Holy Cross Church, Tetcott, commemorating members of the well-known Devon family of Arscott. This is one of four Arscott memorials in the church (LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ). Hoskins becomes quite carried away in his book "Devon": "There are magical overtones in the very words Arscott of Tetcott. They epitomise all the ancient Devonshire squires and their homes: the wind-flung rooks on December afternoons, branch-strewn parks emerging from curtains of fine rain, rambling, echoing stone-flagged houses set all alone at the end of muddy lanes, darkened by beeches and sycamores". (See LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) ). Handheld at 1/8 second, no flash!
