Square platform about 1.1 m high, with six steps, all in rubble masonry. The top consists mostly of a single large slab. Evidently to facilitate mounting a horse, but undatable. Said to have been used until c.1920. Roughly built and oddly positioned away from and at an angle to the churchyard wall.
Also a set of iron rings set in the adjacent wall for tethering horses.
An interesting survival, included for group value with the church.
