Primitive head and footstone carved from sandstone. The headstone has a relief angel with the wings extended to circular motifs at the corners so making a wavy top. Below this the top line of C17 type lettering is visible but the rest is sunk in the ground. The footstone has larger circular motifs which are set closer together with a smaller and taller roundel in between.
