The colouron the effigies and on the shields is in a fairly good state of preserva-tion, but its date cannot be fixed accurately. Stow, writing in 1598,did not describe the tomb ; neither did he in 1603; but his successorStrype in his extension in the year 1720 says both the monument andthe effigies are lately in a reparation of the church refreshed andbeautified .

The three westernbays which contain Raheres tomb consist in the upper half of threearched canopies which are richly crocketed and terminate in foliatedfinials in the cornice.
