Medieval wayside cross situated by the roadside at a junction of two minor roads at Polmenna. It survives as an upright granite head and shaft mounted on a modern granite base. The head has unenclosed arms, a form known as a `Latin' cross, its principal faces orientated east-west. The overall height of the cross is 1.35 metres. The upper limb of the head has been fractured at some time in the past. All four corners of the two side limbs are chamfered. The shaft tapers slightly to the top and all four corners are chamfered giving an octagonal section, but sloping out above the cross base to form a square moulded foot to the shaft. The shaft has also been fractured and has been repaired with a cement join. The shaft is mounted in a modern, rectangular granite base stone which is set flush with the ground. The cross was found in 1932 in use as a gatepost. It was repaired and re-erected in its present location in the same year. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
