A WEAVER'S TOMB in St Helens churchyard at Darley Dale

The carvings on the side of this table tomb date from the mid-18th century when the Huegenots who were Protestant exiles fled from France to England.

The carvings of weavers frames show the trade they brought with them.

A carpenter's tomb carved with the tools of his trade can be seen at St John the Baptist Church Ault Hucknall.
