Notes

A churchyard cross 2 metres south east of Sandford church porch, which is likely to be its original position. The cross survives as a socket stone, shaft, head and arms. It has a small rectangular recess, an unusual feature, on the southern side between its arms. The shaft was broken in the distant past, but now the parts are restored. The socket stone is partially buried, only the chamfered upper octagonal top is clearly visible, although the corners can just be discerned so it is likely to be square at the base. Within the socket stone is a shaft which is square at the base and octagonal above. The join from the restoration is clearly visible on the shaft. Above the join the shaft is still octagonal and tapers to a point below the arms. The overall height of the cross is 2.78 metres. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II*.
