Notes

Medieval wayside cross situated at a crossroads known as Cross Gates. It is believed that it has always marked this junction. The cross survives as an upright granite shaft with round, `wheel' head. The overall height of the cross is 1.52 metres. The principal faces are orientated north east-south west. Both principal faces of the head bear a relief equal limbed cross with slightly expanded ends to the limbs. The top of the head on the north east face has been fractured at some time in the past, the fracture has worn smooth by natural erosion. There is a narrow bead around the edge of both principal faces. At the neck are two rounded projections, one on either side of the shaft. Scheduled.
