The Flinders ledger stone is finished! 

This stone has been specially brought in from Ireland, to match the other ledger stones in the church. 

The highly talented Alan Micklethwaite has been painstakingly working on the ledger stone for us for many months, carving an image of The Investigator ship and Trim the cat. 

We at MFBHH are so very proud to present the stone to Donington for the reburial of Captain Matthew Flinders on the 13th July - a fitting centrepiece for the event.

It took five hours, two pump trucks a hoist and some effort to get it into the North Aisle of the church!
