Royal Coat of Arms St Mary the Virgin Church, North Stoke
This Royal Coat of Arms is set high up on the chancel arch, where it would be visible to all the congregation. It has the inscription GIIIR, which must set the date around 1760. The Lion of England is on the left, with the Unicorn of Scotland on the right, with another Lion at the crest. Interestingly, a free Unicorn was considered dangerous, hence the chains around it.
