9/330 Churchyard cross
immediately S of
Church of St Leonard


Churchyard cross. Probably medieval; restored in 1934. Granite.
Monolithic tapered octagonal shaft with run-out stops at the base of
alternate sides. Set into an octagonal granite socket stone base. The
cross head is C20 and has splayed octagonal arms.
The cross was formerly situated just outside the churchyard on the roadside
to the south, and it is said to have been used as a whipping and tethering
post before it was moved into the churchyard in 1934 when the cross head
was restored.
