Park the car at Skårby church.
In front of the churcj tower stands a rune stone.
It was discovered in the 17th century in the cemetery wall.
Then it was forgotten.
At the beginning of the 20th century,
it was found again and set free in the wall.
It was there when I was here last time.
It was a bad place, tree roots and racial risk meant that in 2016
it was moved to a place in front of the tower, where it stands today.
It lacks part of the top.
The stone is dated to around 1000.
It has a simple running loop with the text:
"Aute set this stone after Håkon."

There is another runstone named after the village of Skårby,
the Skårbystenen 1. In the 1600s, it lay on a meadow,
along with several other large stones, between Skårby and Gudsnave.
In 1880 it was moved to Marsvinsholm Castle Park,
and in 1913 it was moved to Kulturen in Lund.
There it stands today together with other rune stones
in front of the white house.
On the stone is a figure that can be interpreted as a happy lion.
Its inscription is:
"Kåulv and Aute they put this stone after Tomme, his brother, who owned Gussnava."
