Notes

A standing stone cross within the churchyard of St Peter's Church. The cross is of stepped form and is believed to be 14th century in origin. It includes a base, consisting of a plinth and two steps, a socket stone, a shaft and an 18th century ornamental head. The steps are octagonal in plan and on the uppermost step stands the socket stone which is also octagonal in section. Set into the centre of the socket stone is a stone shaft which is surmounted by a cube like sundial and a ball finial that are believed to date from an 18th century restoration of the cross. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
