Masonic Gravestone | Blackburn

This grave can be found within the graveyard at St John's the Evangelist Church in Blackburn. It is where I am having my art residency and exhibition. It has as much symbology from the Masons that you can shake a stick at. It is pointing straight up to the Masonic Lodge in Blackburn, which is a coincidence.

It has:

The letter G
the Globes of the Stars and the Earth
the All Seeing Eye
the Compass and Set Square
the Arch and Centre Stone
the Jacob's Ladder
the Seven Stars
the Moon and the Sun
the Key to Heaven
The Pyramid
and others that I can't make out.

The ground was consecrated in 1786 with a stone carved with the Blazing Star.
