An early 15th century wayside cross located close to its original position on the north side of the main village street through Doniford, at its junction with the Williton Road. Constructed from red sandstone, the remains of the original cross structure include the socket stone and part of the shaft. It was described in 1877 as 'close to the toll-gate, and erected over a stream that runs through ats arched basement... a very good example of one of the uncommon so-called 'water crosses'.' Since then the stream has been embanked and the cross, of which only the shaft and socket remain, has been moved about a metre to the grass verge.
