A standing stone cross located 300 metres north of Alders Farm, on the boundary between the parishes of King's Cliffe and Blatherwycke. It is situated on the edge of a small copse immediately to the south of the King's Cliffe to Blatherwycke Road. This copse is remnant of the hedgeline which formerly ran along the parish boundary at this point, and the cross is believed to stand in, or very close to, its original position in the hedge. The cross is set into a stone slab and stands to a height of 1.15 metres. It is believed to be of medieval date, and is constructed from limestone ashlar. The rectangular shaft has short side arms and tapers slightly to a wheel head which bears a Maltese cross decoration in relief on the western face. Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
