Undated. Image shows the tomb of Lionel, Lord Welles, Sixth Baron Welles, Lieutenant of Ireland, and his wife, Cecilia located in the Waterton Chapel of Methley Church, the Church of St. Oswald. The alabaster recumbent figures lie against the South wall. Lord Welles was killed in the Battle of Towton, known as 'Palmesundayfield' in 1461.

The figures are a fine example of fifteen century work and are intricately carved Lord Welles is clad in armour with a lion at his feet and Cecilia is dressed in a long mantle.
