A circular lead alloy spindle whorl, bi conical in section, with a pale grey patina. It is almost complete, with a ridged line running around the outer perimeter which is slightly chipped away in places. It is decorated on both faces with different free form designs composed of raised lines forming figure- of -eight loops and interlacings, with a crude shape on either face that maybe interpreted as a figure with arms that extend into the design, and possible pseudo runic elements, with figures that could be interpreted as a letter 'W' and an 'O'.

A lead alloy spindle whorl of medieval date. The object is circular in plan and biconical with a central circular perforation. The perforation has an internal diameter of 9mm. Surrounding the central perforation are 14 raised pellets. Moulded lines run out from the perforation to a circular band resulting in the formation of seven 'cells'. Each cell contains two pellets. Within each cell the pellets are bordered on one side with a curved double ridge. The border on each face appears to be filled with moulded lettering which is difficult to decipher.
