Churchyard north-east of
- the Church.
Sundial, late Cl7, but involving the use of a medieval cross shaft.
Red sandstone with wrought iron pointers. An old three-step base
supports a deep ogee moulded block and an octagonal cross shaft with
moulded cap. A cube of stone, with wrought iron pointers on the four
vertical faces, sits on top of the cross shaft. A ball finial, on a
slender round support, completes the arrangement.
