Listing Text

3/189 Churchyard Cross approximately
- 11 metres to south of Church of St
Churchyard Cross. Probably late Medieval restored and possibly re-sited in 1919.
Granite Maltese Cross with shaft larger than arms, chamfered edges with cushion
stops to shaft. At the centre of the Cross on the front and rear face is a mortice,
the purpose of which is unclear. The Cross is set on a square red sandstone bare-
octagonal on top with cushion stops; this is probably re-used. This in turn rests on
a large flat base inset into which is a plaque with Latin inscription dated 1919.
