The remains of two standing crosses in the churchyard of St Margaret's Church. The remains of the first cross include a cross base and a section of shaft in sandstone of late medieval date and situated approximately 11 metres south of the south porch of the church, on the east side of the pathway leading to the porch. The chamfered cross shaft survives to a height of 0.75 metres and is about 0.4 metres square, set into a stone base 0.5 metres high and 0.8 metres square. Only the base of the second cross survives, it is situated 10 metres south west of the porch of the church, on the west side of the pathway leading to the porch. Thought to be of medieval date, it includes a weathered sandstone block 0.7 metres square with a chamfer at the upper edge and a rectangular socket measuring 0.36 metres by 0.26 metres. At least one of the crosses has been moved from an earlier site; one cross having brought into the churchyard from a nearby roadside. Both crosses are Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
