Notes

A churchyard cross in the churchyard of St Mary and St Bartholomew's Church. The cross is principally medieval in date and includes the plinth, socket stone and shaft, and stands over 1 metre in height. The socket stone is octagonal in plan and is partly bonded to the plinth, which is visible below the turf line. The socket stone is decorated with panels on each face bearing quatrefoil mouldings, five of which have shields in the centre. The end of the shaft is morticed into the square socket. The medieval cross shaft rises through chamfered corners to a tapering octagonal section, the top edge has a shallow hollow or socket carved into it. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
