A wheel-headed wayside cross, without base. It is probably in situ and is made of polyphant stone, not granite as is usual, also having square projections at the neck. The head is oval surrounded by a bead which continues, in Langdon's description, part of the way down the shaft; this extension is not now visible. A latin cross is carved in relief on both faces of the head within the bead. Ellis dates the cross to 12th century or later.
