Church of St. Mary


Churchyard cross, remains of. Probably C14 or C15. Limestone. Square stepped
moulded plinth on base of 2 square steps. Short section of octagonal shaft with
raised quatrefoil decoration (not in situ and probably the upper part of the
original shaft) rises from square socket of plinth; C19 Celtic cross-head
