Description
Freestanding rectangular-plan mausoleum, dated 1861. Roof now collapsed and tree growing within. Walls of rubble limestone, with squared quoins and string course below top of walls.

Limestone steps and threshold to doorway.

Appraisal

This stone-built mausoleum is a simple structure which is difficult to date but the doorcase, with its large blocks of stone could be mid-eighteenth century. The inscription is a good example of folk art.
