The ‘Founder’s Tomb’ is said to be the grave of the
architect of the old church who fell from the roof
to his death around the year 1490. Can you see

of coats of arms - what might they symbolise?
Delving further into the past, Welsh hero Owain
Glyndwr married Margaret Hanmer, at St Chad’s in about
1380. Owain was to lead a revolt against the English but his resting
place remains a mystery.
