Vallentuna Kyrka runestones

Vallentuna church is home to a number of rune stones, some have modern interpretations.

There are a number of runestones in the churchyard here, though a couple of them are not in the traditional style.

Unfortunately I didn't notice the B-side of this stone, nor could I get inside the church because there was a service in progress and I didn't want to disrupt it looking for a rune stone.
