Family History

This stone is to be found serving as a step at the south facing door of the Kirk. The markings shown on its face are consistent with anchor points required for the porch which previously occupied this position. Slugs of lead are visible embedded into the stone. This was a method of anchoring which would have been utilised to give added grip on the stone by flattening the ends and nailing them to the wooden uprights of the construction.

Whether the stone was ever used as a grave marker is unknown.
