Notes about this historic site

1 Medieval churchyard cross situated on the N side of the church. Square socket stone only, without shaft or steps. On one side, facing the church, is a niche on which is a carved representation of the Crucifixion.
2 A stone carved with a crucifixion on one side – perhaps the base of a 15th century cross.
3 Socket stone at above grid reference.
4 The stone is now extremely worn and the crucifixion is not visible. No shaft or steps survive and present siting may not have been its original position.
