This is a Saxon grave-lid that was discovered in the chancel of the church during rebuilding in 1820. It has come to be known as the Wirksworth Stone. Beneath it was the well-preserved skeleton of a tall man, believed to be Betti, a monk who came to Wirksworth in the year 653, and was the founder and first priest of this church. (March 2001)
A Man Named Betti....hmmmm.
