View of the Waterton and Welles tombs in Waterton Chapel of Methley Church, Church of St. Oswald. These alabaster tombs are a fine example of fifteenth century work and were restored in 1988. Against the South wall is the tomb of Lionel Lord Welles, killed in the Battle of Towton in 1461 and his wife, Jane, heiress of Robert Waterton. In the foreground is the tomb of Robert Waterton and his wife, Cecily, beneath a decorated canopy. The four lights of the stained glass south east window depict, from left to right, St. George, Rachel, St. Katherine and St. Francis. The window was erected in 1901 in the memory of Rachel Katherine Walpole, Viscountess Pollington, who died on 21st June 1854.
