Notes

A standing cross 8 metres south of the south wall of the chancel of the parish church at Woodchurch. It consists of two steps and a cross base carved from a single block of local sandstone. Let into the base block is the shaft of a sundial and a modern crosshead has been attached to this shaft to convert it into a high cross to commemorate the Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887. The cross dates from the early 16th century and is an unusual survival of both the shaft and base with its steps in this region. Scheduled.
