Notes

Medieval standing stone cross located on the village green. The cross is principally 14th century in date with a 20th century base. It includes the single stepped base, the socket stone and the lower part of the shaft. The single stepped base is square in plan and constructed of three courses of stone blocks. The socket stone rests on the step and is made up of two separate stones, one immediately above the other. The bottom stone rises through chamfered corners with weathered stop angles to an octagonal section on the surface. The upper stone is mortared to the lower stone and is square in plan with chamfered corners at the top. The base of the shaft is mortared into the upper part of the socket stone. It rises through chamfered corners to an octagonal section and is broken off at a height of 0.88 metres. The full height of the cross in its present form is 2.26 metres. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
