Notes

The monument includes the base and the lower part of the shaft of a Grade II Listed standing stone cross. The cross is located in the churchyard of St Bartholomew's Church to the south of the nave. The cross is medieval in date and is constructed of limestone. The base takes the form of a socket stone resting on the remains of a single step. The socket stone is approximately 0.88 metres in section at the base with a chamfered upper edge. Set into the socket stone with lead is the lower part of the shaft, square in section at the base and rising above moulded and chamfered corners in tapering octagonal section to a height of 1.16 metres. The top of the stone is flat with a linear slot in the centre, now containing the stub of an iron fitting; on it was formerly fixed the upper part of the shaft and a cross head. Scheduled.
