History

Late medieval, possibly early C16 and contemporary with the tower etc. of the adjacent Church of St. Michael and All Angels (qv). It has an introduced cross-head which is possibly the original gable cross from the chancel.

Exterior

Churchyard Cross of white limestone which consists of a short polygonal shaft with cross-head in square socket on base of three square steps. The shaft has been truncated and the cross-head which appears to be of a different stone, probably comes from elsewhere (see History).

Reasons for Listing

Included as a partly medieval cross and for group value with the Church of St. Michael and All Angels.
