Effigy of Sir William Hatcliffe 
    Sir William died in 1551. 
    As can be seen by the graphic 
    on the right his effigy is in 
    danger of being erased 
    by the ravages of time.

    Sir William is depicted 
    in full armour, his hands 
    joined in  prayer. Above his 
    head are his quartered arms.

    With the invaluable assistance of 
    Peter Hill, a resident of Hatcliffe, 
    and the approval of the church
    committee a Restoration Fund is 
    to be set up to restore the effigy. 

    Experts have been called in and 
    we are awaiting the final costing.
