3/10 Footstone approximately 3 metres
north of chancel of church of St.
Footstone undated, probably early C19. Slate. Upright broad square-headed slab
standing approximately 0.4 metres high and inscribed with neat Roman serif upper
and lower case letters. It is a poem which suggests that it marks a child's grave.
Top corners enriched with sunburst motifs and there is a simple pattern over the
poem of drawn out scrolls. It is apparently no longer associated with a headstone.
