The tomb of Bishop Stafford

The grandiose tomb of Bishop Stafford, with its alabaster effigy and Beer stone surround with flying angels, was constructed in the cathedral in the early 15th century. The anonymous painting indicates how much of its dramatic colour scheme survived into the 19th century; the tomb was repainted in the 1960s.
