Notes

Medieval churchyard cross in the cemetery to the north west of St Teath church. The cross is visible as an upright granite shaft, with a round, or `wheel' head, mounted on a rectangular granite base. The monument measures 3.96 metres in overall height. The head is fully pierced by four holes creating an equal limbed cross with widely splayed arms linked by an outer ring. The principal faces are orientated north-south. Both these faces were originally decorated but the decoration on the south face is very worn. There are traces of decoration on the north face. This cross is believed to be the original churchyard cross of St Teath and has been the subject of reuse, restoration and re-erection in the 19th century. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
