A collection of Hogback Stones in the church of St Thomas, Brompton, Yorkshire. These stones, which date back to the 10th to the 12th centuries are grave covers. These examples show bears gnawing at stylised roof structures - no one is sure why. Generally it is boars (hogs) doing the gnawing!

Very interesting notes and photo
The work on these stones are very intricate and you captured them very nicely.
And for being so old, there is still greata details seen.
Wonderful in original screen.
