Other details: Two tracings in pencil: Plate XLII is confined entirely to tiles, many of which are of extreme beauty and of elaborate design. Fig.1 is a series of border tiles, of unique pattern, of the 13th century. Consisting alternately of beaded circles and birds and foliage. Of these curious tiles, examples are preserved, with others, in the church porch and one is in the possession of Mr Bateman. Of this period, birds and foliage intermixed are highly characteristic ornaments and one border tile is given in Volume IV Plate II Fig 8 from Worcester but the Bakewell border is of a much more elegant character than the other examples mentioned. Fig 2 is three fourths of the most elaborate six tile pattern. Of this pattern only two tiles out of the sixteen have been found and must trust to future discoveries to complete the corners of the design.
