Medieval grave slabs at St Michael's Church (Longhoughton)

A few metres south of the Church of St Michael is a group of four medieval grave slabs. They may still be in their original positions and if so they are unique in Northumberland. The designs of three of the slabs are very similar to those in the Cathedral Yard at Durham Cathedral. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
