A stone chest tomb from the middle of the C18 commemorates Captain Limeburner of the Royal Navy and his wife. The south side has lost its central panel and the angle balusters are displaced. A condition survey has been prepared, with funding from Historic England, and funding for repair and restoration works has been secured through a Section 106 agreement.
