Headstone, 1799. Sandstone. Shaped top with relief carving of
blacksmith's tools above inscription to John Hunter of Black Hedley
Woodhouse. Rear has verse:

My Anvil and Hammer lies declind
My Bellows have quite lost their wind
My Fires extinct my Forge decayd
My Vice is in the dust all laid
My Coals is spent my Iron gone
My Nails are drove my Work is done
My Mortal part lies nigh this stone
My Soul to Heaven I hope is gone.
