Stone tomb of Gerard de Visme who died in 1797, consisting of a square plan, rusticated pyramid with corner acroteria to the base. An acroterion has fallen due to movement in the stone blocks, and another is dislodged. Slow deterioration continues. A condition survey has been carried out, funded by Historic England, and funding will be sought to enable the necessary works to be carried out.
