Photograph of the tomb of Thomas Rickman (1776-1841), who, as the inscription reads, 'first correctly named the several styles and clearly elucidated the principles of our ecclesiastical architecture' ( i.e. he coined the terms ""Early English"", ""Decorated"" and ""Perpendicular"" still used by church historians today), in the former churchyard of his St George's Church. The original St. George's was consecrated in 1822 and became a parish church in 1830. Despite extensive renovation, dry rot damaged the building beyond repair and it was demolished in 1960. The photograph was taken in mid 1963.
