6/154 War memorial about 20
metres North of Church of
Cross re-erected as First World War memorial. Probably C15 cross, re-
erected in 1920. Tall granite monolith about 2 metres high with octagonal
tapered shaft with pyramid stops at the base and the short octagonal arms
have an arris moulding; one of the arms has been replaced. It is set on a
stepped granite base with lead lettering naming those who died in the First
and Second World Wars.
The cross, which was probably a wayside cross was formerly used as a gate-
post before it was set up as a memorial. It is said to bear the marks of
bomb damage from an air-raid of December 17th 1942.
