61 MANSERGH (E.g.)

(O.S. 6 in. XLIII, S.E.)

Mansergh is a parish on the W. bank of the river Lune 3 m. N. of Kirkby Lonsdale.


(1). Rigmaden Park, house near the middle of the parish, is modern, but preserved in the stable-yard is a stone construction in the form of a table-tomb and of unknown provenance. The slab has a top surface of lozenge checkerwork, the face has three panels, the middle one forming a rebated opening; one end has a shield-of-arms of Crane, probably of the 17th century. Incorporated in the stables is part of a coffin-lid of late 12th or early 13th-century date; the edges have double cable-ornament.
