A carved stone has been reset in the S wall of the disused church, near the join between the roofless section at the W end and the roofed E section. The carved stone is evidently not part of the original masonry.
The stone is carved with a head with closely-set eyes and ears set high up and towards the front (like an animal's ears). On the R side of the head a snake-like monster appears to curl around the chin, biting behind the ear. On L a small animal (with legs) is biting the ear. Running in diagonal curves below the chin are a series of parallel grooves and ridges. The stone appears to be complete, and the head is raised in relief on a rectangular block, set in the wall.
