Cross 25 metres north-west of south gate to churchyard
Free-standing cross, perhaps Pre-Conquest or early medieval. Cut sandstone.
Rectangular slab narrowing at the top to a cross with rounded armpits and a
tapered 'hammerhead' top; overall height 1.05 metres. Probably a sepulchral
monument rather than a churchyard cross; a very similar cross (see reference
below), now lost, was found at Gateshead in 1908.
