Description: Medieval grave.

A single lintel grave was found in May 1930 by workmen extracting sand from a small sand-pit in Bowling Green Road, Castletown. The grave was found to be covered by a worn and cracked upper mill-stone with a bold design worked upon its upper surface, in place of the usual transverse slabs.

The sand-pit in which the grave was discovered was visited by J.R. Bruce in 1966 whilst researching for the Manx Archaeological Survey published in 1968. The sand-pit was almost completely filled in and grass-grown, and there were no signs of other graves.

There is no known tradition of either a chapel or a graveyard in the area, and no record of any other similar finds ever having been made.
