 Conservators:  Lillico-Thomspon Conservation

To date a number of different paint colours have been uncovered.     Some of the original lettering (c. 1827) has been revealed.  The lettering was filled in when the new bronze cross was erected in 1930.   The original sandstone surface appears to be in a stable state. Further investigation will be required before a decision can be made on repainting or leaving the sandstone exposed.
