043 This Stone stands against the corner of a cottage on the east side of the School, it was first noticed when taking down the old wall of the burial ground and was then removed to its present position, but where it originally stood cannot be ascertained It is a rough block of unhewn stone about 5 feet in height by 18 inches in thickness. the figures carved on it represent a circle with a semicircle on each side (called the "spectacle" figure by antiquarians [Signed] EHC. [E.H. Courtney]) and a line through the centre parts of other three circles (this figure is the "fibula", an ornament which is very rarely found indeed. The ornament which occurs at the chipped end of the Stone seems to be a "mirror" [Signed] E.H.C. [E.H. Courtney Capt RE. Captain Royal Engineers]), and a representation of what appears to have been a barbed spear or arrow.-
