Notes

Remains of a late 9th-early 10th century stone cross, discovered in a hedge in 1869 during road widening. It was moved to its present position from the centre of the road junction between 1939 and 1945. Dressed granite wheel-headed monolithic cross with short integral shaft set over a later round shaft and socketted into a stepped round base made of 2 granite monoliths. Cross has crucifixion to one face and Greek cross and 4 bosses to the opposite side, all carved in relief.
