    The weather and lichen of the past 215 years have eroded this eighteenth century gravestone at Quadring, Lincolnshire. In another couple of hundred years all the carving will be gone. Until then we can just enjoy the attractive surface left by the ravages of time.

    Having lasted over 200 years, the carving has already outlasted many 'newer' grave markers I have seen. You don't often get quality like that any more! There's still a lot of detail left in the carvings (angel, leaves and flowers), and the moss and lichen adds real texture to the photo.
