The stone showing cup marks

Another view

Park by the kirkyard. Go through the gate behind the ancient yew tree and just next to the wall to your right is the stone - which was apparently found buried at a depth of about 8 feet next to the tree in whose shadow it now stands. The uppermost flat top of the stone bears around 14 cup marks, but obviously a great chunk of the stone is missing. It would be interesting to know what the whole thing originally looked like.
