Two Lusty Angels!

Writing in 1880, Alex Warden in "Angus In Parishes -Tealing" said" in the front wall of the church there is an old sculptured stone, upon which is portrayed a sea serpent. The mason who built the stone into the wall had not been acquainted with sea serpents, as it is placed upside down. On the back wall there is a stone on which there are two lusty angels, but this is not a very old stone, and the sculptor has not been an artist of merit. High up on the west gable there is an elaborately sculptured stone with several figures upon it. They appear to be administering rites in connection with some Episcopal service. It is beautifully executed; but being placed so far above the ground, it is not seen distinctly and no careful examination can be made".
