Notes

A churchyard cross of stepped form. The cross has two steps, socket stone, shaft, and head of red sandstone. It is principally medieval in date with some later additions. The steps are octagonal in plan and the bottom step is partly bonded to the foundation. Both steps are chamfered on their upper outside edge. The socket stone is octagonal and is also chamfered on its upper outside edge. The squared end of the shaft is morticed into the socket. The shaft rises through chamfered corners to a tapering octagonal section. The remainder of the cross shaft and the head are 19th century additions. The full height of the cross is over 2 metres. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
