The cross is wholly medieval, probably C15 and appears to be complete, unaltered and unrebuilt. This makes it an exceptional rarity.
Mediaeval Cross built of limestone, which consists of a polygonal shaft with carved tabernacle head, square socket on base of four square steps. The crosshead carries carvings of the Crucifixion on the west face and a Pieta on the east face; two figures of saints on the other sides.
Included and highly graded for its fine design and the great rarity of its exceptionally complete state.
Scheduled Ancient Monument Gm 210 (GLA).
