This unusual family mausoleum commemorates the Barton family of nearby Waterfoot House in County Fermanagh. It is well-built using good quality rock-faced masonry to the front elevation (east) and retains a good-quality cut stone gravemarker to the west end with leaded lettering. The Barton family is also commemorated in a fine stained glass window to the chancel gable of the adjacent church (see 40850022). This family vault is an interesting addition to the built heritage and social history of Pettigoe.
